“Rotational inputs are the only way to influence joint capsule”.
@drmchivers .
A profound concept I have taken from @functionalrangeconditioning is using rotational inputs to improve linear movements. .
When there is closing angle dysfunction or aberrant joint mechanics it is essential to address the joint first. .
Want to improve mobility? Expand joint capacity first with rotational movements.
.
Video example of rotational inputs to stress the joint capsule of three joints.
🅰️Rotational inputs : PAIL/RAILs- Passive holds followed by end-range isometric contractions.
•Hip
•Shoulder
•Knee .
Goal: Expand global joint capacity. #frs #controlyourself #functionalrangesystems #functionalrangerelease #functionalrangeconditioning #functionalrangeassessment

Understanding how the body learns is a prerequisite to understanding how best to teach it — Without clean, accurate afferent information, our CNS’s ability to learn is diminished. 🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻 Healthier joints↔️better afference ↔️better movement↔️better motor learning 🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻 (🎥from the Inaugural FRC Summit - June 2018)

☑️Function sets the table for the building of physical capacities.
☑️Dysfunction sets the table for the building of compensations.
✅You are either building one or the other... #functionalrangerelease #functionalrangeconditioning #functionalrangesystems #functionalanatomyseminars  #frpractitioner #frrelease #controlyourself #westsidebarbell #conjugate #conjugatemethod #mobility #health #coach #train

@str8_flexin31 performing glenohumeral (shoulder) joint controlled articular rotations (CARs) post FR treatment.
.
1️⃣"Local Treatment" ➡️ EXPAND
☑️FR treatment focused on isometrically loading the mechanically restricted ranges of the capsular (connective) tissues within the glenohumeral joint; which enabled the acquisition of increased active/passive ranges of motion of the humerus (arm bone) relative to the scapula (shoulder blade), specifically in rotation.
✅Overall Objective: Expand the available ranges of motion (ROMs) while inducing tissue adaption.
.
2️⃣"Global Treatment" ➡️ CONTROL
☑️CARs post FR treatment (in this specific setting) is to challenge the newly acquired ROMs via FR treatment, in a more global setting to teach the Central Nervous System (CNS) how to control the newly acquired ROMs.
✅Overall Objective: Expand/Improve neurological control by providing the CNS with as much afferent feedback as possible in a global setting within the newly acquired ROMs.
.
‼️Afferent Feedback: is information coming from the peripheral tissues structures (articulating tissues of the joint) that provides the CNS with information about where the joint is in space and what it is doing.

Nice case here using #FRS. #Repost @drdavecrosson

One of the most commonly missed diagnosis...unless you are a Functional Range Release practitioner. 16 year old high school football player with right hip pain for over a year, MRI for labral tear negative, radiographs: unremarkable without femoral head pathology. Enter the reflected head of the rectus femoris. Yes, your rectus femoris attaches at two different locations with the direct head attaching to the AIIS (anterior inferior iliac spine) and the reflected head attaching on the labrum/hip capsule. Studies will indicate the reflected head is longer and has many Type II muscle fibers (fast twitch) so athletes who are exposed to high eccentric loads (loading while lengthening the muscle) more commonly injure this area of the muscle and this is commonly misdiagnosed.
Treatment consisted of: @fucntionalrangerelease to the reflected head of the rectus femoris, posterior hip capsule due to some closing angle joint pain and adductor magnus (adductor portion). @functionalrange conditioning of side lying hip cars to expand control of new range, PAILs/RAILs (positional isometics) in multiple ranges ranges in in the anterior and medial thigh as well as pelvic floor isometrics. Hip extension pails pictured here.
