Course Description

Presenter: Elizabeth Howard

Fascia is one of the most critical and misunderstood anatomical structures. Understanding how the fascial strains inter-relate to the rest of the body is crucial to diagnosing and treating many presentations.

In this course Elizabeth Howard will provide an update the latest physiology and pathophysiology of fascia and review the functional anatomy of the major superficial and deep fascial chains.

Learn how to confidently examine your patient for myofascial restrictions and myofascial contributors to their pain. Liz will also demonstrate simple protocols and techniques (including patient education and self-management tools) to effectively treat the anterior fascial chain and superficial fascial restrictions.
