Are you interested in fascia and have seen the name Stecco in the research? Learn about this system of analysis and treatment of the deep muscular fascia in this 1 day introductory course to the Stecco method of fascial manipulation.
Fascial Manipulation is a manual therapy that has been developed by Luigi Stecco, an Italian physiotherapist.
Focusing on fascia, it considers the myofascial system as a three-dimensional continuum. This method presents a complete bio-mechanical model that assists in understanding the role of fascia in musculoskeletal disorders. In recent years, Prof. Carla Stecco MD and Dr. Antonio Stecco MD, PhD have carried out extensive research into the anatomy and histology of the fascia via dissection of unembalmed cadavers in Italy and France. These dissections have provided new histological and anatomical data including the existence of myotendinous expansions between segments, the multi-layer structure of deep fascia and the abundant innervation of the tissue by mechanoreceptors and free nerve endings.
The mainstay of the manual method developed by L. Stecco lies in the identification of specific, localised areas of the fascia in connection with specific limited movements. Once a limited or painful movement is identified, then a specific point on the fascia is implicated and, through the appropriate manipulation of this precise part of fascia, movement can be restored.
The course will run from 9am-5pm with registration from 8.30am.
This course will be of interest to those who would like to learn more about the role of the deep muscular fascia, or already have knowledge of fascia but would like to learn more. There will be a treatment demonstration on a patient in the afternoon.
