About the course

Fascial Manipulation© is a manual therapy that has been developed by Luigi Stucco PT, in collaboration with his children Carla Stecco and
Antonio Stecco (both MDs, PhDs), over the last 40 years. Focusing on fascia and in particular the deep muscular fascia. FM 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, both Carla and Antonio Stecco have carried out extensive research into the anatomy and histology of the fascia via dissection of unembalmed cadavers in Italy and other countries. These dissections have provided new histological and anatomical data including the existence of myotendinous expansions between segments, the multi-layered structure of deep fascia and the abundant innervation of this tissue by mechanoreceptors and free nerve endings. The mainstay of the manual method developed by Luigi Stecco lies in the identification of specific, localized 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 the fascia, movement can be restored.

This level I course includes fascial anatomy, introduction to Stecco’s biomechanical model for the musculoskeletal system and initial training for therapists to treat common musculoskeletal dysfunctions. Emphasis on Myofascial Units, Centers of Coordination (CC) for unidirectional movements, balancing and proprioception.

Learning Objectives Level I

At the conclusion of the course, the participant should be able to:

 

  • List the types of human fascia and understand the role of fascia in nociceptive pain. (Knowledge)
  • Differentiate between ascending and descending type of disorders and assess the proper body segments. (Analysis)
  • Develop effective treatment for myofascial pain syndrome and musculoskeletal disorders. (Synthesis)
  • Evaluate the quality of the deep fascia through palpatory verification and treat appropriate the points (Centers of Coordination) restoring the tissue sliding. (Evaluation)
