Evaluation and Manual Treatment
of the Fascia System as a Functional Unit
The modern clinician who uses reason and knowledge to treat his/her patient will be interested in this course as it provides a scientifically based treatment approach to organic dysfunction of the fascia system.
Critical analysis and integration of the current knowledge about embryology, anatomy, physiology, and neuro-hormonal regulation, will be discussed. This presentation will highlight that the fascia system is a complex organ system that sends out communication signals and that plays an active role in dynamic equilibrium. Its interaction with dysfunctional states of the human system how it interplays with dysfunctional states of the human system will also be covered.
The fascia will be looked at through a dual lens of historical perspective and recent research, derived insights and these concepts will be applied to the clinical setting.
During this course you will be informed of the latest research about fascia, its biochemical nature and its role in immunology, sensory functions and the load-bearing and transfer of kinematic forces, as it relates to movement. During the lab portion of the class you will be presented with treatment techniques that will be specific to various movement dysfunctions. Assessment and treatment will look at the fascia system as an organ, rather than named parts, and how the selected treatment influences immunology.
