Most people go through life with physical struggles and joint pain that they have learned to deal with. We tolerate things like lower back and neck pain and limited range of motion in body parts that are meant to be flexible and move often.
Our hope is to change that way of thinking.
The Functional Range Assessment (FRA®) is a diagnostic tool we use to assess how you move on a joint by joint basis. We will explore everything from your neck down to your toes.
We highlight areas that need improvement, create movement baselines for your unique body, and take the guesswork out of where you need help the most.
You will walk away from the FRA having learned something about your body that you didn’t know before.
The standard approach to exercise is to look at things from a “functional” standpoint: can you squat, push, pull, deadlift, etc.?
The FRA says you have a body full of independent joints, so let’s spend time exploring what those joints are capable of doing on their own.
Then we can see how well they coordinate to create movement.
Meet Tom, a former collegiate rugby player and all-around athlete who spent most of his life physically active and healthy. He endured injuries, aches, and pains along the way, as many of us do.
Unfortunately, Tom was in a tragic car accident that left him with chronic back and hip joint pain.
He came to us to improve his hips; we used the FRA and protocols from Functional Range Conditioning (FRC) to drastically improve his ability to move.
What you see is a 45-day difference in Tom’s hip flexion, improving his range of motion by over 15 degrees.
Tom is well on his way to understanding his joints and body better. More importantly, he’s stronger, more resilient, and happier than he thought possible.
