Strength: Can be defined as the application of high force against a heavy resistance
Conditioning: A process of physical modification by which a patient comes to associate a desired behavior with a previously unrelated physical activity.
Coordination: Harmonious functioning of muscles or groups of muscles in the execution of movements.
Functional Training involves more than simply increasing the force-producing capability of a muscle or group of muscles. Rather, it requires physical modification to enhance the coordinated working relationship between the nervous and muscular systems.
Functional Rehabilitation involves performing controlled movements in an area of dysfunction, in such a manner that the improvements in strength, conditioning and coordination directly improve the performance of movements so that an individual’s activities of daily living are easier to perform.
Simply stated, the primary goal of Cross Functional Rehab Specialists is to transfer the improvements by functional rehabilitation to the area of dysfunction by enhancing the performance of the entire neuromuscular system. This highly specialized rehabilitation will help every athlete recover faster and perform better.
