Functional Range Assessment (FRA) is a measurement-based assessment system that provides objective measures of an athlete’s movement capacity for each and every articulation. Then, training inputs (FRC’S®) are able to be directed at the individuals specific deficits.

Functional Range Release technique, or FR® Release is an advanced, and comprehensive system of soft tissue assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation, used by some of the most highly regarded manual therapists around the world.

Functional Range Conditioning® is a comprehensive joint training system based on scientific principles and research.

There are 3 main training-goals when utilizing the FRC® system which are all closely interrelated, and acquired simultaneously:

MOBILITY DEVELOPMENT Mobility 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 STRENGTH While improving mobility and movement potential, the FRC® system also acts to ‘bullet proof’ (or safe-guard) your joints so that movement can be executed safely.

BODY CONTROL 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.

Common injuries include:

  • Headache
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Hip pain
  • Rotator cuff injustices
  • Shoulder injuries

Advantages of Functional Range Conditioning

There are many benefits to Functional Range Conditioning, and you can maximize all such advantages if they are performed by a certified and experienced FRC specialist. Some of these benefits include:

Joint Strengthening

Functional Range Conditioning targets the different connective tissues of the body through progressive loading, which results in adaptation and resilience. Modalities are applied in various areas, including the ligaments, bones, fascia, tendons, vessels, and capsules. They also affect 80% of the nerves.

Improved Flexibility & Mobility

Aside from teaching the body to recognize and control the newly-introduced ranges of motion, what FRC aims to achieve is to develop strength, power, and coordination in such areas.

Prevention, Rehabilitation, & Performance Enhancement

Functional Range Conditioning’s versatile nature makes its application suitable to many athletic and rehabilitative exercises and treatments. The results create greater ranges of motion which later become vital to enhancing one’s agility. And when a person is agile, they can more effectively function in all life and sporting activities.

Articular Joint Longevity & Overall Health

Many doctors and fitness clinics use Functional Range Conditioning for clients of all ages to optimize joint health, strengthen movement, and even slow down natural degeneration. One of the components of FRC, called Controlled Articular Rotations (CARs), was developed with this specific goal.

Functional Range Conditioning is a versatile and highly safe method that can improve your mobility and flexibility. As always, before trying this exercise, consult a licensed healthcare professional who is experienced in FRC to find out whether this method is suitable for you and if it will help you achieve your fitness targets.
