Discussing palpation technique for deep soft tissue structures

October 22, 2013

As we all are treating 3 dimensional beings, as opposed to the 2 dimensional pieces of paper with images that we use to study anatomy from, we have to always be cognizant of tissue depth when assessing or applying soft tissue procedures….

In this video taken at a Functional Range Release (FR)® certification seminar in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Dr. Spina discusses how to palpate deeper soft tissue structures.   As is mentioned, “Having a preconceived idea of what something ‘should’ feel like is the greatest barrier to actually palpating it,” meaning that when a practitioner studies anatomical text and visualize say a muscle, the actual sensation of palpating live tissue will often differ from what is expected. The reason for this is outlined in the video.
