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.
Which other courses might be relevant to me?
This course is part of two, one-day workshops held over a weekend. It is not necessary to attend both days but many delegates choose to do this. The other course is the 3D Sports Biomechanics & Muscle Chains. Robin Lansman also runs Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Shoulder Dysfunction Workshop, a refresher course designed for those who want to brush up on their skills in this area.
Who is running the course?
Robin Lansman teaches students about his approach to Osteopathic Rehabilitation & Sports Injury Management at the British School of Osteopathy and across Europe. He has also been on-hand at many London Marathons to help runners of Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) & Alzheimer's Charities and is a qualified osteopath. He is also President of the Institute of Osteopathy.
What have previous delegates said about the course?
"Immediately applicable principles and techniques"
"Have already found improvements in delegates on whom I have practiced"
"I think this will really help clear up chronic cases that have not responded well to treatment"
"Very engaging, easy to understand and to practice"
"This was completely new to me"
