If you are a modern day forward thinking physical therapist of any description or somebody who wants to figure out how to make a real lasting difference to your own musculoskeletal issues this book is a must.
The books covers several aspects of fascia and its treatment. This includes the musculo-skeletal aspects, as well as the possible association of fasciitis in relation to organic complaints such as prostatitis and endometriosis. There's not a lot of evidence based literature on this aspect of the subject, so the comments made here are based on her own personal experience.
The mid-section of the book covers pain and its links to abnormal fascial patterns. It discusses the physiology of pain and the endocrine system, neurotransmitters and prostaglandins, all at an entry-level of understanding. Next comes exercises, diagnostic methods and other aspects that may be of interest to patients looking for a means of self-help.
There are some very helpful diagrams to illustrate exercises to run through for those who have a sedentary job and suffer lower back, shoulder or neck pain issues.
The author makes passing reference to other healthcare systems like yoga, Alexander technique, Tai Chi and other methods of improving self-awareness of poor posture and its chronic effects.
If you are looking for a basic introduction to the subject of fascia, what it is, and how it may have a relationship with common pain problems, then this book can he heartily recommended. We have a copy in the waiting room of our osteopathic practice and the feedback we get from patients from having read it is entirely positive.
