The book is intended to increase the awareness among physical therapists and other bodyworkers of the significance of fascia in the conditions they treat. It presents an approach developed by the author from the basis of manual therapy for the articular, muscular and neural systems. In the world of orthopaedic physiotherapy, the use of manual therapy techniques has become increasingly evidence-based, and study after study shows its efficacy along with exercise therapy for the management of the most common orthopaedic conditions. However very few physiotherapists have written about the fascial system, and there is a general ignorance within the profession of what fascia is, how it relates to the techniques they use, and why it is important to their work. The book follows the principles of assessment and treatment of the fascial lines as described by Tom Myers in his book Anatomy Trains. This book is probably the first to be written about fascia from the perspective of a physiotherapist. As practitioners dealing with musculoskeletal pain they often find that no matter what they have tried in their existing 'tool-kit', it hasn't had the positive effect they are seeking. They may also be experiencing situations where clients are complaining of multiple areas of pain that don't correspond or fit into the paradigms that physiotherapists are familiar with, even as fully trained manual therapists. What they may be missing is the fascial component. This book will introduce them to it. The book is user-friendly for the practitioner, with a minimum of theory and an emphasis on practical applications.
