Stecco Fascial Manipuliation® Method

349.00599.00

Fascial Manipulation© is a manual therapy that has been developed by Luigi Stucco PT, in collaboration with his children Carla Stucco 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.

Description

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, localised 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.

Fascial Manipulation® Courses

There are three levels of Fascial Manipulation® courses (6 days per level). The Fascial Manipulation® training program for the locomotor system consists of two intensive hands-on courses of 6 days each that combine theoretical lectures, demonstrations, and practice between participants throughout each day. Participants will learn to evaluate musculoskeletal dysfunction with specific reference to the human fascial system, and to apply the Fascial Manipulation method as taught by Luigi Stecco, PT. Lectures include the anatomy and physiology of the fascial system, an explanation of the biomechanical model used in application of this technique and the anatomical localization of key fascial points. Emphasis is placed on the evaluation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions (from history taking, to a hypothesis, to a verification and treatment) together with a methodology and strategy for treatment.

FM® basic training program is intended for:

  • Medical doctors,
  • Physiotherapist,
  • Chiropractors.

Level I – (6 days) 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.

Level II – (6 days) Completion of Level I is a prerequisite. Consolidates clinical application and introduces Centres of Fusion (CF) that are areas extremely important for proprioceptive dysfunction and complex movements.

Level III – (7 days) Completion of Level I & II is a prerequisite. Level III addresses the modality of treatment for internal dysfunctions based on Luigi Stecco’s model for the internal fasciae, including superficial fascial dysfunctions.

FM LEVEL I

Level I Fascial Manipulation® consists of two three-day courses (for 48 hours total) that need to be taken within 4-6 weeks of each other to assure a good understanding of the underlying biomechanical rationale and mastery of the technique. Level I discusses the problems related to dysfunction of the locomotor system, by associating the densification of the Coordination Centers to conditions such as tendinitis, low back pain, lumbar disease, cervicalgia, carpal tunnel, headache and so on. It studies analytically, every Myofascial Unit in the continuity of Myofascial Sequences. The main objective is to develop an understanding of the Coordination Centers (CCs), responsible for the normal function of the monoarticular muscles and synergistic biarticular muscles.
