The fascial component in osteopathic practice with Paolo Tozzi DO
As a structural element of the body connective system, fascia can be considered as a ubiquitous tissue permeating the whole organism. It seems to respond to cellular and macroscopic lines of tension by reorganizing itself accordingly. From this perspective, the repercussion of a fascial restriction will be body-wide, and may potentially create stress on any structure enveloped by fascia itself. Yet osteopathic fascial treatment aims to release such tensions, to restore function and to balance the inherent body mechanisms, so to be often proposed as an adjunctive treatment for various conditions. This course will offer an overview of the most common fascial techniques used within the osteopathic armamentarium, together with their different forms of application, ranging from indirect, direct to combined methods. To guide the clinician through the understanding and the application of such fascial tools, various evidence-based mechanisms as well as different hypothesis based on osteopathic principles will be proposed and discussed.
