The Connective Tissue Continuum: Is it more extensive than we give it credit for?

September 18, 2012

In this video, Dr. Spina discusses some of the problems surrounding the current use of the popularized term ‘fascia.’  Specifically he describes that much of the current popular literature on the topic has failed to account for the full extent of CONNECTIVE TISSUE continuity.  Also discussed are the problems with over reliance on ‘fascial trains’ for soft tissue assessment/treatment, the idea that function dictates anatomy as anatomy dictates function, the biocellular hierarchy of connective tissue, and progressive adaptation through training.  This video is a must watch for any and all involved in manual therapy, and physical conditioning.  Please feel free to share with colleagues.
