Fascia is often the missing link for addressing persistent pain, pain after a fall or injury, immobilisation, recurrent acute back pain, movement restriction after surgery, post-surgical pain, contusion injuries, scar tissue and more.

There is a huge amount of current research to support how osteopaths work with the fascia in a holistic way to improve patient outcomes. This includes anatomical connections derived from embryology, neurovascular supply, connective tissue mechanics and mechanotransduction, interactions of the fascia with inflammation, cellular messengers, hormones and the immune system.  

A thorough understanding of the physiology and pathophysiology of the fascial systems can help inform patient education, tailored movements and specific rehabilitation that is quite different to how we approach muscular dysfunction. Liz Howard has translated this research into a simple assessment and treatment model for local and global fascial dysfunction, to help select the best treatment techniques and self-management for your individual patient.

After many years teaching at Australian universities, internationally and with Bower Bird CPD, Liz has expanded her popular face-to-face Myofascial Release course into an online version with even more content than the one-day course.

Myofascial Release Online is focused on the musculoskeletal fascia and how to treat it efficiently and effectively. The course features over 40 videos of lectures, techniques, case-studies and more. You will learn fascial embryology, the functions of different types of fascia including the superficial and deep fascia, where the different long chains connect, where the layers interconnect, the biochemistry of fascia and how the health of the fascial extracellular matrix is essential for optimal human physiology and homeostasis. 

You will learn direct and indirect fascial techniques, treatment dose based on key clinical indicators, how often to treat the patient and how to estimate prognosis. Learn how to select the best home management and exercises for optimal patient recovery. You can apply this knowledge to a wide range of people including athletes, teenagers, older people, manual workers, office workers and more. Safety concerns and informed consent are discussed.

Your Certificate of Completion will display 8 Learning Hours Completed which represents the total length of all the videos you watched. Many professional associations will accept the extra time spent re-watching videos, and reading the linked supporting content as professional development too, so don't forget to make note of this time and declare it if applicable.

    On completion of this course you will be able to:

    • Describe the embryology, clinical anatomy and physiology of connective tissue (fascia)
    • Recognise key symptoms of fascial dysfunction in the patient history
    • Integrate an efficient fascial screen into your standing assessment
    • Identify key signs of myofascial restrictions and contributors to pain
    • Formulate a holistic treatment plan based on the latest research
    • Educate patients about the fascial system and how it may contribute to their symptoms
    • Utilize the anterior fascial chain treatment model in your practice
    • Identify when to use direct or indirect myofascial techniques
    • Demonstrate individual patient education and self-management tools such as simple global exercises
