What is Fascial Manipulation Therapy?
It seems simple… but what if movement is not comfortable? What if movement is actually painful? We can see from the picture, there are many layers that work together to protect and help keep our body moving.
The two layers of fascia need to be able to slide on each other without interruption.
What Causes an Interruption in Fascial Layers?
Overuse, trauma and even surgery can have an impact on fascial layers.
The hyaluronic acid layer which acts as a lubricant to help the layers slide, can become thick and “sticky”. This causes the layers of fascia to stick together like two pieces of tape.
Fascial Manipulation Therapy has a direct impact on the hylaluronic acid and layers of fascia. With specific testing, trained professionals (like Dr. Kathleen Nazar Corbett) are able to detect problem areas that may be the source of your pain and limitation. Treatment is intended to “warm up” the layer of hyaluronic acid to make it thinner and less sticky so the layers can once again glide freely.
