WHAT IS Functional Range Assessment (FRA)?
FRA was developed by Dr. Andreo Spina and Dr. Michael Chivers. This assessment is utilized by many of the top professional and amateur sports programs. It is assessment that is used to find how the joint functions as an independent joint with priority of what the movement is based on the articulation of that joint. It will give the client a good idea of where their joint health is currently at. Then once you know where your current joint health is, you can then move forward in planning a personalized program for your specific needs.
WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL RANGE CONDITIONING (FRC?)
FRC was developed by Dr. Andreo Spina and Dr. Michael Chivers. FRC uses several techniques to help improve joint mobility, articular strength and to improve neurological control of the joints. This is scientifically developed and proven method to re-establish control over your joint health. When your joints are healthy in the micro movements that they were designed for, your macro movements will improve as well increase the joints resiliency to internal and external stress.
