FASCIAL DYSFUNCTION: MANAGEMENT IN MANUAL AND PHYSICAL THERAPIES
View Cart


Leon Chaitow
 
A comprehensive course exploring the clinical relevance of current fascial research for manual and physical therapists. The aim is to arrive at a greater understanding of manual methods that encourage analgesic, anti-inflammatory effects; enhance tissue repair; reduce levels of fibrosis/adhesions/scar formation; improve circulation, drainage, posture, balance, mobility and function.
The course will address how the frequency, degree, depth, duration, direction and frequency, of applied biomechanical load (shear force, stretch, compression etc) have contrasting (sometimes opposite) effects on tissues and how unique individual characteristics including age/health/ 'resilience'/pain/tissue status etc. influence these processes. Above all the course aims all to allow the clinician to work more effectively with fascial dysfunction.

The course will introduce several approaches to work within the fascial sphere including: Exercise, Friction/Fascial manipulation, Muscle Energy Techniques (Standard MET : Direct/Indirect, Pulsed (rhythmic) MET Isotonic eccentric Slow /Rapid/Isolytic), Myofascial Release/Induction, Positional Release Techniques, Facilitated PRT, Counterstrain, Post-surgical & Scar-release and Lymphatic techniques.

Some of the key topics covered by the course include: Connective-tissue self-regulation, Durometer usage, Elastography imaging, Endocannabinoids, Hydration effects, Inflammation (fasciitis), Load transfer, Mechanotransduction, Sliding/gliding layers, tendon repair.
