We are thrilled to bring to you Anatomy Trains 12 Days of Christmas Masterclass Series, showcasing world renowned thought leaders in fascia, anatomy, & body-minded movement. With this amazing lineup, it will be hard to pick just one to attend!

Each two hour Masterclass will be presented live over zoom – we encourage you to join us live! We will have exclusive contests for those who attend live, with fun prizes awarded to the winners. However if you cannot attend live, you can relax in the knowledge that each webinar will be recorded and the recording will be made available for you to enjoy for 45 days.

Please note: To ensure a high quality student experience, registration will close January 2nd at 8AM EST

Webinar description:

In recent years the innervation of the fascia and soft tissues has become increasingly important in the etiopathogenesis of pain, but actually the relative importance of the various anatomical structures is not known. In this presentation the type and quantity of innervation of the various soft tissues will be presented. Besides, we’ll discuss the different modalities that can explain fascial pain:

1. An alteration of the fascial tension: in this case the fascia maintain the correct microscopic
and macroscopic structure, but it perceives an altered tension
2. An alteration of the macroscopic structure of the fascia, as a scar tissue
3. An alteration of the microscopic structure of the fascia, and here we’ll listen all the
microscopic alteration that we know until now:
a. Alteration of the density of innervation
b. Alteration of hyaluronan amount and hydration
c. Alteration of the collagen and elastic components
d. Alteration of the hormone receptor

Only knowing all these variabilities, we can approach a fascial pain in the proper way and we can understand way patients answer to our treatments differently.
