Functional Range Assessment®

Now a 2-Day seminar, FRA® is open to those who have successfully completed either the Functional Range Conditioning (FRC)® and/or one of the Functional Range Release (FR)® certification seminars.

Functional Range Assessment (FRA®) will build on the systematic concepts of the FR and FRC systems, this time focusing on how to quantify a client’s basic movement capacity. In doing so, it will allow you to better prioritize your management decisions as it provides you with a better understanding of the patient/clients’ needs and where they fit within the spectrum of the Functional Anatomy Systems.

The seminar covers a variety of concepts including (but not limited to):

  • FRA measurement procedures
  • Advanced Controlled Articular Rotations (CARs) assessment and interpretation
  • Removing confirmation bias’ during assessment
  • Neurophysiology as it applies to the Functional Anatomy Systems
  • Dynamic Systems Theory as it relates to movement creation and interpretation
  • Advanced FRC programming
  • Advanced clinical assessment and interpretation

***NOTE: FUNCTIONAL RANGE ASSESSMENT IS ONLY OPEN TO THOSE THAT HAVE COMPLETED THE FUNCTIONAL RANGE CONDITIONING AND/OR ONE OF THE FUNCTIONAL RANGE RELEASE SEMINARS. IF YOU HAVE REGISTERED, AND DO NOT HAVE THESE PREREQUISITES A REFUND WILL BE ISSUED IMMEDIATELY.***
