What is Functional Range Release?

FRR focuses on identifying and addressing movement restrictions, scar tissue, and adhesions within the body to restore optimal function and mobility.

This technique is designed to enhance tissue quality, increase range of motion, and alleviate pain.

Functional Range Release® technique is a comprehensive system of soft tissue (muscle) assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation that was designed to treat muscle pain due to tightness or injury. 

FR Practitioners use a systematic method of assessing which muscles are injured and provide hands-on manual therapy to reduce the pain of injured muscles. This is similar to typical massage treatment, with an increased focus on treating specific muscles throughout movements that increase pain. 

Certified Functional Range Release® practitioners at E3 Chiropractic + Wellness underwent extensive training in soft tissue (muscle) palpation, treatment, and rehabilitation.  This includes a detailed look at the scientific literature about tissue health and injury.

Benefits of Functional Range Release

  1. Improved Range of Motion: FRR targets the root causes of restricted movement, enabling the body to regain its full range of motion. By targeting specific tissues and applying precise pressure, FRR helps break down adhesions and scar tissue, promoting increased flexibility and mobility.

  2. Enhanced Tissue Quality: FRR aims to optimize the quality of soft tissues by stimulating blood flow and encouraging the remodeling of damaged tissues. This results in improved tissue strength, elasticity, and overall health.

  3. Effective Pain Relief: Whether it's due to a sports injury, repetitive strain, or poor posture, chronic pain can significantly affect one's quality of life. Functional Range Release can help alleviate pain by releasing tension in the affected areas and promoting proper tissue healing.

  4. Injury Prevention: By improving tissue quality, flexibility, and mobility, FRR can help prevent future injuries. This is particularly beneficial for athletes and individuals engaged in physically demanding activities.
