This ubiquitous connective tissue is a relatively-unexplored frontier of manual therapies but its sheer magnitude as a body system, and the rising popularity of various forms of myofascial release among our patient population begs clinicians to take a closer look. The presentation will screen rare microvideography of living fascial tissue, highlight current research into its amazing properties, and model a clinical approach to myofascial assessment and myofascial release treatment. The presentation will have a clinical focus. Participants will get an understanding of how fascia is thought to behave, learn the five fundamentals of myofascial release and will observe a clinical assessment from a myofascial release perspective.
The recording is of a workshop presented by ESSA on 29 October 2014 in Perth, WA.
Presented by Mr Roger Edmunds
Roger Edmunds has been in clinical practice for seven years specialising in myofascial release. He is an assistant instructor for Myofascial Release Treatment Centers and Seminars in the USA, and has worked alongside physiotherapist John F. Barnes who pioneered myofascial release in the 1970s. Based in West Perth, Roger’s main interests are chronic pain conditions and promoting more effective stretching methods to reduce the risk of injury. Of the 100,000+ health professionals trained by Barnes, Roger is one of only six Australian therapists trained in this technique.
