FUNCTIONAL RANGE CONDITIONING
Functional Range Conditioning, or FRC ®, is a system based in scientific principles and research, designed for Mobility and Joint Control training. Dr. Ace Casiano is a Certified FRC Mobility Specialist and helps his patients expand their movement capacity.
There are 3 main goals when training using FRC® system: Mobility Development, Joint Strength, and Body Control
Mobility refers to the amount of active, usable motion that one possesses. The more mobile a person is, the more they are able to maximize their movement potential safely, efficiently, and effectively.
While improving mobility and movement potential, the FRC® system also acts to ‘bullet proof’ or safe-guard your joints so that movement can be executed safely.
Training with FRC® improves the function of your nervous system. This leads to a reduction of pain and injury, joint health and longevity, as well as an increased ability to move freely and easily.
In any particular joint articulation there exists both a passive, as well as an active range of motion. The passive range refers to the angles that are only attainable through passive means (ie. The application of passive, external force). Active ranges of motion are those ranges that are attainable through the application of active internal (muscular) force simulated by nervous system activity.
It is these active ranges that can provide the benefits of injury prevention, improved performance (athletic and non-athletic), and lasting articular health.
FRC® utilizes the latest advancements in scientific knowledge, combined with tried and tested training methods to increase ones active, usable ranges of motion by simultaneously improving articular mobility, strength/resilience, and neurological control.
