Discussing mobility longevity, connective tissue remodelling, and movement

November 20, 2013

This footage was taken at an Functional Range Release (FR)® Upper Limb certification seminar with the Chicago Cubs MLB medical staff.  In it, Dr. Spina discusses various concepts pertaining to the long term histological remodelling of soft tissue structure and how soft tissue therapists should remember to focus on long term movement goals.

    I really enjoyed the video.
    I have a specific question not related to it. What are the similarities between your system and Active Release Technique? I’m an ART practitoner and I would like to know your thoughts about taking your courses. And I also would like to know if you have any courses planned for Europe next year.
    Thanks for all your great content.

      Thanks Francisco.

      There are many, many differences between the two systems. I was actually an ART certified practitioner prior to developing FR. The FR system was actually created out of a desire to update soft tissue techniques with the most current scientific knowledge.

      The specifics would take a great deal of time to explain, and I don’t want to put down another system. I will tell you that the FR system was created out of literature (versus in the opposite direction as most systems are). As well, the system is more complete in the sense that it includes instruction in assessment/palpation procedures, treatment, and rehabilitation.

      We have actually run two seminars in Italy. We have lessened our European travels as of late but are currently trying to book some dates.
