An Introduction to Functional Range Conditioning
FRC® is a trademarked system of mobility and joint control training, which, unlike many current systems is based on scientific principles and research. Mobility, defined as the extent of controllable flexibility across articulations, refers to the amount of USABLE motion that on possesses. In any articulation, there is an active and passive component of range of motion. Passive motion is a range of motion that is one acquires through “passive” means and is synonymous with flexibility. Active ranges are attained through active means (muscle forces). FRC® believes that it is not enough to have passive range of motion, but that you must be able to control the entire range of motion by active means. This innovative training system improves the ability to control, and move ones own body. FRC® works, by systematically expanding the body’s range of motion, while simultaneously teaching the nervous system how to control those newly acquired ranges.
Functional Range Release (FR®)
FR® is an advanced and comprehensive system of soft tissue assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation. Conditions commonly treated using this system include spinal pain (low back, neck), headache, shoulder impingement, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, tennis or golfers elbow, sciatica, knee pain, osteoarthritis, and many more. Further, because FR® certified practitioners utilize both passive care (soft tissue work, joint mobilization, etc), and active care (rehabilitation, exercise prescription, etc), these conditions can often be resolved permanently. FR® consists of functional soft tissue assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation that was designed using the most current scientific knowledge to ensure the highest quality care. FR® does not only function to treat injuries, it is also used to improve the quality of a persons movement, as well as to promote joint health and longevity.
