Functional Active Release (FAR)
Fri 9 June 2017, 09:30 – 18:00 BST
Functional Active Release (FAR) is practitioner applied focal inhibition combined with patient-controlled multi-lanar active movements. This approach produces deep and lasting changes in function, helping to reduce the chances of injury and improving sports performance by quickly and effectively releasing deep postural stiffness.
- Hip girdle & gait disruption
- Fracture recovery after joint replacement (hip/knee)
- Kypho-Lordotic chronic postural stiffness
- Shoulder girdle – dysfunction
- Whiplash type– post-trauma stiffness
- Ilio-psoas dysfunction
How can this approach benefit the practioner?
FAR can reduce the stress on your body by combining the best concepts of other myo-facial treatment techniques. The patient is fully involved in the treatment process so that you can get better results by working cooperatively, and it's easy to monitor changes in the patient to measure the effectiveness of the approach.
