Video Course: Introduction to Fascial Manipulation

Larry Steinbeck

Fascial Manipulation is a manual therapy method that was developed by Luigi Stecco, an Italian researcher and physiotherapist. It focuses on the fascia, in particular the deep muscular fascia, including the epimysium and the retinacula, and it examines the myofascial system as a three-dimensional continuum. You’ll walk away from this presentation with a biomechanical model that will assist you in determining the role of fascia in the musculoskeletal disorders you see in your clients. You’ll not only have a better understanding of the fascia's role in musculoskeletal pain, but will discover the clinical implications that will direct your hands-on work.
