Historically, up to 85 percent of back-pain cases have been thought to have no known cause. Recently, a number of researchers have identified a contributor to many kinds of previously unexplained low-back pain: the highly innervated and multilayered thoracolumbar fascia. Join popular presenter Til Luchau as he demonstrates several hands-on myofascial techniques for the thoracolumbar fascia and walks us through a chapter from the second volume of his best-selling Advanced Myofascial Techniques textbook. Get the optional ebook for two sneak-peek chapters to Volume II, as well as a mini-manual and note organizer with additional back-pain techniques.
