Video Course: Myofascial Units form Myofascial Sequences

Julie Ann Day

Myofascial units are the building blocks of myofascial sequences. By understanding the anatomical connections between muscles and deep fascia we can interpret the adaptive changes that occur in our patients and enhance our manual therapy skills in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain. Fascia densifies in response to strain, stress, and injury and, due to fascia's basal tensioning, dysfunction spreads in definable directions. Consequential limited motion and pain can be interpreted through the analysis of movement tests that indicate which myofascial units are not functioning correctly.
