What is Functional Range Release?
Functional Range Release is currently the latest and most scientifically proven advanced soft tissue therapy system. The treatment system focuses on the assessment, localization, and systematic treatment of soft-tissue lesions (adhesions) and areas of fibrosis (scar tissue) which develop as a result of injury, repetitive strain, and cumulative trauma.
By utilizing specific Tissue Tension Techniques & Progressive Angular Isometric Loading, Functional Range Release expands on the basic tenets of myofascial-release treatments by simultaneously assessing, expanding, and strengthening the patient's functional range of motion.
Functional Range Release vs 'Other Systems'
The basic premise of Functional Range Release is the focus on influencing a person's central nervous system. It was previously widely believed that muscles were responsible for limiting a person's joint range of motion. Evidence now confirms that a person's central nervous system, which controls and governs muscle length/tension, has a much greater influence and control of a person's joint range of motion.
The principles of Functional Range Release focus on influencing the central nervous system to allow for greater joint range of motion, and strength/ 'functional range' within that expanded range of motion. No other soft tissue management system to date has the same focus.
