What is the FRE?
-A whole body examination that includes assessment of posture, body alignment and
mechanics, muscle tightness and weakness, functional movement patterns, walking, and
balance. We also assess Range of Motion and strength for affected body regions.
What do we do with the FRE?
-This assessment is usually recorded by a Physical Therapy Assistant or our Athletic Trainer. It
is then evaluated by our Physical Therapist, medical team, and Chiropractors to figure out what
impairments we need to address in treatment. If you receive Physical Therapy, the PT will go
over these results with you. We will repeat this testing in the future to track your progress.
