Explore how myofascial therapy can contribute to functional performance by increasing flexibility, reducing pain, and improving quality of life in this brief introduction. Fascia surrounds and connects all structures in the body. Abnormal tension in the fascia from stress, injury or disease contributes to a multitude of pain problems, including fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome. Its role in mobility, biomechanics and human performance is being recognized by researchers around the world. The latest evidence will be discussed to confirm the benefits of myofascial work. This course includes video demonstrations and illustrations of a variety of myofascial techniques to illustrate how this gentle stretching technology can transform mobility and functional performance.
