About Functional Range Release®
Functional Range Release (FR®)
Functional Range Release® represents a paradigm shift in the treatment of soft tissue dysfunction, pain and injuries. Developed by highly renowned Canadian Chiropractor Dr Andreo Spina, FR® is fast becoming one of the most highly regarded soft tissue treatment systems in the world!
Why is FR® so different?
Whilst to the untrained eye, some of the techniques may appear very similar to other soft tissue techniques like ART®, FR® actually is a lot more in-depth, more scientific in its approach and a lot more realistic in its treatment objectives. Based on the latest scientific research and evidence based concepts, FR® utilities proven tissue remodeling concepts, in combination with isometric contraction / tissue loading techniques, to help create change.
Why movement is key
FR® incorporates a passive movement based concept. The practitioners are taught how to use passive ranges of motion to distinguish the difference between mechanical, aberrant tissue tension, and neurological tissue tension. This gives the FR® a huge advantage over other similar techniques as the right tools can be used for the right kinds of tensions.
When combined with Functional Range Conditioning®, it really is a complete system, not only addressing dysfunctional tissue but teaching the patient how to control themselves. This greatly reduces the chances of injury / pain recurrence and provides much longer lasting results!
