WHAT IS FRC?
The FRC System was developed by movement specialist Dr. Andreo Spina. Functional Range Conditioning is a system of joint health and mobility training based on scientific principles and research.
The FRC System of training applies scientific methods to expanding the 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. The definition of mobility is what Functional Range Conditioning is all about.
With FRC we are trying to expand our articular ranges of motion, while also teaching the central nervous system how to control these ranges of motion as well.
FRC will also allow us to induce progressive adaptations for tissue preparation and safety.
