Connective Tissue and Fascia

Various Courses

This practical and theoretical series of workshops 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 series of one-day updates, 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, British Fascia Symposium in 2014, and additional papers up to the present. This new information should assist with clinical reasoning during all stages of rehabilitation. Practical sessions will focus, as stated, on specific fields within clinical practice, and will include a selection of basic and advanced manual treatment approaches and techniques. The research findings are relevant for all manual therapists and should support lively debate in relation to a “Hands on” or “Hands off” approach. Subsequent parts of the series will focus on delivery of more advanced techniques and enhance a deeper understanding of complex dysfunction, in terms of the fascia and relationships to its attachments.

Connective Tissue & Fascia – A forgotten Interface: Part 1

This workshop is aimed at clinicians wishing to expand their clinical reasoning and practical skills with regard to recent research on Connective Tissue and Fascia.

The workshop summarises the latest research surrounding what the fuss is regarding "fascia", and links this information to our understanding of the nervous system.

The workshop also relates this fairly new information to our understanding of movement, dysfunction, and our attempts to restore more appropriate and efficient movement after injury or pathology.

Part 1 can be tailor made to many areas where manual therapy, exercise therapy and movement analysis are indicated, and includes the fields of:

Adult and paediatric Neurological rehabilitation, musculoskeletal and sports injuries, all surgical specialities, adult & paediatric trauma, orthopaedics, respiratory, women’s health, podiatry, personal training, pilates, movement therapies and complementary healthcare where manual therapy is involved.

This course is highly practical relating to soft tissue techniques. Please contact Michelle Watson (info@therapyfusion.com 01789 262372) for further information or about running a course in your department.

Connective Tissue & Fascia: Part 2

With Michelle Watson & Erica Malcolm (former Bobath Tutor)

 

This workshop is a follow-on from Part 1, where, I am joined by Erica Malcolm (Director / Clinical Lead:www.PhysioWhereYouAre) and former Bobath tutor.

 

There is a brief recap from Part 1 with additional research, techniques and clinical reasoning.

 

After lunch, there is a patient demo for 90 minutes where we assess a patient with symptoms, and attempt to restore more appropriate and efficient movement patterns to that individual. Followed by a discussion.

 

Our workshop focus is always to make the patient the centre of our thoughts, and to make the research and practical component as clinically relevant and practically applicable as possible from intensive care settings to the community.

Analysis of Movement Course - Bridging the gap: MSK, sports and neuro rehab may be more kindred than we think!

 

This course is designed for musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapists / personal trainers and movement instructors to enhance clinical skills by taking a more neurological approach to movement analysis.

 

To help improve a person’s symptoms, and their ability to function, we often need to analyse their movements and postures. If someone has a complex or chronic movement dysfunction, it can be hard to pinpoint the factors that are the cause and those that are the result of their particular history, especially for those with neurological disorders. Sometimes our clients may be ready to progress, but a part of them is so stiff, weak or misaligned, that they are unabIe to move forwards. It can be an even bigger challenge to attempt a rehabilitation program where the person continually changes. We therefore need to continually update our analytical skills.

 

This one-day course aims to give a research update on control of movement, and then focus on analysis of movement, and better understanding how we move within the vast range of “normal”. We will then analyse a person with an injury or pathology as a group, and relate this knowledge to compensation and discuss management options.
