Functional Range Conditioning (FRC®)

Is a system of mobility training based on scientific principles and research. Developed by world-renowned musculoskeletal and human movement expert Dr Andreo Spina.

Mobility refers to the amount of USABLE motion that one possesses across a particular articulation or joint. The more mobile a person is, the more they are able to maximise their movement potential safely, efficiently and effectively.

There are 3 main goals when training using FRC® system and all are closely interrelated, and acquired simultaneously:

Mobility Development

Joint Strength

Body Control

Functional Range Release (FRA®)

Is a system of manual musculoskeletal assessment, treatment and rehabilitation based on sound scientific principles. FR® was created out of the most current scientific literature and therefore represents a cohesive system of manual soft tissue care using the best evidence, most effective strategies currently available to assess, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate musculoskeletal disorders, pain and movement dysfunction.

The FR® system has been successfully utilized to manage a wide variety of injuries and dysfunctions in various populations. This includes problems affecting any and all bodily tissues such as muscles, tendons, nerves, ligaments, joints, etc.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury.

Trigger point therapy

This involves deactivating trigger points that may cause local pain or refer pain and other sensations, such as headaches, to other parts of the body. Manual pressure, vibration or acupuncture needles are applied to these points to relieve myofascial pain. Trigger point massage is usually carried out by the chiropractors as part of a normal treatment session.
