Need some new tricks in your manual therapy bag?

Fascia is one of the most critical, misunderstood and fascinating anatomical structures. Fascial restrictions can limit good muscle function, maintain poor posture and affect the function of the peripheral nervous system.

Fascia requires manual techniques that vary from muscular treatments and are often the missing link for;

  • persistent pain after a fall or injury
  • recurrent acute back pain
  • post-surgical pain, including scars
  • contusion injuries

Myofascial Release will begin by briefly updating the latest functional anatomy then teaching you to confidently examine and treat myofascial contributors to pain using the Anterior Bowstring model.

This course has a strong practical focus including treatment protocols (including patient education and self-management tools) that you can use immediately in your practice to improve patient outcomes.

Learning outcomes

  • Review of the functional anatomy and amazing properties of fascia
  • Overview of the Anterior Bowstring model
  • Recognise fascial dysfunction in the case history
  • Integrate a quick fascial assessment into your postural screen
  • Identify key symptoms and signs of myofascial restrictions and contributors to pain
  • Anterior fascial chain treatment protocol
  • When to use direct or indirect myofascial techniques
  • Patient education and self-management protocols including simple global exercises
