FRC CARs for the Neck
First off let’s define a couple of things. If you are one of my athletes than I’ve probably introduced you to FRC and CARs, but for those of you who don’t know, FRC stands for Functional Range Conditioning and CARs stands for Controlled Articular Rotations (both of these are concepts from Dr. Andreo Spina.)
CARs are meant to be done at the limit of your articular motion – so make them as big as possible, without hurting yourself. The point of the activity is to focus on isolating one joint at a time and move it through a large range of motion with control and under tension. Doing CARs helps to keep the joint capsule healthy.
In this video I walk you through how to do CARs for the neck, specifically but the basics are the same – create tension through your whole body, isolate a joint and rotate it through the largest range of motion possible.
