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 biomechanical model that assists in deciphering the role of fascia in musculoskeletal disorders.

In recent years, Prof. Carla Srecco MD and Dr. Antonio Stecco MD 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.

Who should attend?

Fascial Manipulation courses are intended for medical doctors, physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors. Other registered health practitioners with at least two years of experience and a good working knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology and notions of postural analysis maybe accepted after submission of their qualifications.

Fascial Manipulation Level I

Level 1 – Addresses the myofascial sequences of the body and the Centres of Coordination, small areas where altered fascia causing dysfunctions within the musculoskeletal system are most common.

On Level 1 participants learn to evaluate musculoskeletal dysfunctions in reference to the human fascial system, and to apply the Fascial Manipulation method as taught by Luigi Stecco. Lessons include fascial anatomy and physiology, the biomechanical model used in application of this method and the anatomical localisation of key fascial points. Theory lessons demonstrations, and practice between participants alternate during the day.
