Connective Tissue & Fascia in Neurorehab
Connective Tissue and Fascia: A Forgotten Interface
Latest research & practical techniques for Therapists working in Neurological Rehabilitation.This practical and theoretical workshop aims to promote a better understanding of the connective tissue and fascial layers that bind the body in a 3D continuum. In the past, the existence and relevance of such tissues during mobility, stability and pathology has been poorly understood. This is a fairly new area of discovery and research.
During this one-day update, the connective tissue and fascial interfaces will be demonstrated, through permitted dissection videos and slides. Discussions will include some of the recent findings from the World Fascial Research Conferences of 2007 and 2009 and additional papers up to 2012. This new information should assist in clinical reasoning during all stages of rehabilitation and will focus on management of spasticity. Practical sessions will include a range of manual treatment approaches. These findings are relevant for all rehab therapists and should support lively debate in relation to a "Hands on" or "Hands off" therapy approach.
