Functional Range Systems

What is Functional Range Systems?

     Developed by world-renowned musculoskeletal expert Dr. Andreo Spina, Functional Range Conditioning® (FRC)Functional Range Release (FR) and Functional Range Assessment (FRA) are parts of a comprehensive mobility and joint training system based in scientific principals and research.  FRA is an assessment system used to identify true joint ranges of motion, and look for areas of movement deficit.  FRC utilizes the latest advancements in scientific knowledge, combined with tried and tested training methods to increase ones active, useable ranges of motion by simultaneously improving articular mobility, strength/resilience, and neurological control. In essence, the FRC training system improves the ability to control, and move one’s own body which in turns allows you to move your best, perform your best and take your physical abilities to the next level! Many of the techniques used in FRS are also used in a clinical setting for injury rehabilitation and prevention.

Benefits of Functional Range Conditioning
  • Improved Mobility
  • Increased Joint Strength
  • Improved Articular Stability & Longevity
  • Athletic Performance Enhancement
  • Long Term Joint Health and Injury Prevention

Dr. Joseph Greenwood and Dr. Jordan Kersten both have certifications in the Functional Range Systems and use the system to both train and treat their athletes and patients.  Want to learn more, Click on the logos above.  

There are 3 main goals when training using FRS® system and all are 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.

Body Control 

 Training with FRC improves the function of the your nervous system. This leads to a reduction of pain and injury, an improvement in joint health, and an increased ability to move freely and easily.

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.
