A system of manual musculoskeletal assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation based on sound scientific principles.

Functional Range Release technique, or FR® Release is an advanced, and comprehensive system of musculoskeletal assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation utilized by leading manual medical practitioners and therapists around the world including Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Registered/Licensed Massage Therapists, Registered Nurses, Osteopaths, Athletic Trainers, Medical Doctors, etc.

Unlike many manual therapy systems which are created based on trial and error and passed down over the years, FR® Release was created out of the most current scientific literature. It therefore represents a cohesive system of manual care using the best evidence, and most effective strategies currently available to assess, diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate musculoskeletal disorders, pain, and movement dysfunction.

FR® for Healthcare Professionals
FR® For Patients


A system of mobility training based on scientific principals and research.

Developed by world-renowned musculoskeletal, and human movement expert Dr. Andreo Spina, Functional Range Conditioning (FRC®), is a system of joint health, and mobility training based in scientific principals and research. Mobility refers to the amount of USABLE motion that one possesses across a particular articulation (joint). The more mobile a person is, the more they are able to maximize their movement potential safely, efficiently, and effectively.

“The FR® & FAP™ Upper Limb seminar was one of the best courses I have been to. It has increased my ability to treat injuries and find the tissue tension when performing manual therapy. I am now a better Athletic Trainer than I was before this course.”
James Ready, Athletic Trainer & Rehabilitation Coordinator, Philadelphia Phillies
“Many clinicians are striving for the latest and greatest connective tissue techniques. FAP/FR® and its approach is certainly well founded by research. Ultimately, understanding anatomy, assessment and palpation are three of the most important fundamental skills that a clinician could obtain and cultivate to gain confidence in an effective treatment approach. FAP/FR® is the most comprehensive seminar I have been to in regards to developing these fundamentals as well as giving you a method for treating your findings.”
Neil Rampe, M.Ed, ATC, CSCS, LMT, PRT, Arizona Diamond Backs
“Unlike other techniques which are largely based on “protocols”, FR® is based on principles of assessment and specificity; specificity in structure, in depth, in range of motion, in tension type and in tension direction. I highly recommend FAP and FR to manual therapists in any specialty. not only will you leave with new methods of treating dysfunction, but going through Dr. Spina’s courses will make your other treatment methods more effective.”
Kevin Neeld, Director of Athletic Development, Endeavor Sports Performance
