Andreo Spina. Functional Range Conditioning is a system of joint health, and mobility training based in scientific principles and research. The FRC System of training applies scientific methods to expanding active, usable range of motion. One of the primary bits of information that you are first taught in regard to FRC is the difference between Flexibility and Mobility. Flexibility is the ability to passively achieve an extended range of motion, whereas Mobility is the ability to control ranges of motion.
Mobility, Kinstretch and Functional Range Conditioning FAQ
Following an initial assessment, this invaluable system allows our therapists to work with you on an individual basis to improve your movement capacity, increase joint mobility, strength and neurological control. By training the long and short ranges of an articulation actively via the nervous system, the joint tissues develop the ability to absorb load at wider Ranges of Motion — therefore leaving them less susceptible to injury. Typically rehabilitation, by its own definition, seeks to restore the damaged tissue to its former load-bearing capacity via beneficial tissue adaptation healing , so that general load and capacity are equal to each other and the injury symptoms are no longer consistently present. This approach to rehabilitation does not always review how movement has altered or if the ranges of motion of the associated or neighbouring joint s are now lower than before. As a result, the belief of returning to the pre-injury state via an incremental basis is considered a contributing factor as to why previous injuries present symptoms periodically or why re-injury of the same site occurs at a later stage i. This facilitation can be extended to working in partnership with your physio, chiro or anyone else who you already entrust in your training or health regime. In short, they share the same continuum, just at different ends.
