What Is FAR?
FAR is a new approach to manual therapy designed by expert osteopath and lecturer Robin Lansman, encompassing a system of assessment, treatment, hands-on therapy and self-care.
Whereas in traditional manual therapies the patient lies still whilst the therapist treats them, in Functional Active Release treatment is given whilst carrying out functional movements of the part of the body being treated. This helps you to recover quicker and more completely, and stay healthier for longer. The process of clear and open feedback between patient and professional also helps guide expectations, and ensure best results for the individual.
How Is FAR Different?
FAR is not just another therapeutic technique but an entire approach to treatment in which the patient is far more active than in usual therapies. Under the therapist’s guidance, you will develop a deeper understanding of the body mechanics relating to your injury, and be proactive in designing exercises and movements that will speed up your recovery.
You will also take a more active role in treatment sessions, carrying out guided functional movements during physical therapy and working in tandem with your therapist to improve whatever problem you are experiencing.
Benefits of FAR
The unique approach of FAR means that you will not only recover from injury quicker but have the tools to develop greater function in daily life. You’ll understand the unique mechanics of your particular physiology and be able to take a knowledgeable and empowered approach to staying fit and functional and avoiding injury.
