Functional Range Release (FR®) & Functional Range Conditioning (FRC®)
Functional Range Release technique or FR® Release is an advanced, and comprehensive system of musculoskeletal assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation utilized by leading manual medical practitioners and therapists around the world.
Unlike many manual therapy systems which are created based on trial and error and passed down over the years, FR® Release was created out of the most current scientific literature. It therefore, represents a cohesive system of manual care using the best evidence, and most effective strategies currently available to assess, diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate musculoskeletal disorders, pain, and movement dysfunction.
Functional Range Conditioning or FRC® is a system of joint health, and mobility training based on scientific principals and research. Mobility refers to the amount of USABLE motion that one possesses across a particular articulation (joint).
There are 3 main goals when training using the FRC system are:
Mobility DevelopmentMobility refers to the amount of active, usable motion that one possesses. The more mobile a person is, the more they are able to maximize their movement potential safely, efficiently, and effectively.
Joint StrengthWhile improving mobility and movement potential, the FRC® system also actsto ‘bulletproof’ (or safe-guard) your joints so that movement can be executed safely.
Training with FRC® improves the function of your nervous system. This leads to a reduction of pain and injury, joint health, and longevity, as well as an increased ability to move freely and easily.
