50 years of clinical experience in fascia with Tom Myers and Dr. Stu McGill

Join in with two fascial pioneers, discussing their respective discoveries in the fast-evolving world of fascia, gleaned from Tom’s 50-year career in fascial education and manual therapy, and Stu’s decades of academic and clinical revelations that have transformed the field of elite training and rehabilitation.

From Tom: As a clinician, not a researcher, my journey through ‘fascia’ started from hearing about this ‘stuff’ from Ida Rolf in 1973. Decades of study – and a lot more people taking up the flag – has over the decades filled that initial picture to our current understanding of fascia’s role in health, performance, and injury. And at the same time, some myths about fascia have become established ‘fact’, so we will dispel the myths and point to the actuality, which is really quite a dramatic shift in our view of the moving body.

From Stu: My scientific career was a collection of discovery voyages while we measured some of the top athletes together with injured people. I realized that many concepts from my academic training didn’t explain what I was seeing. The concept of muscle agonists/antagonists melted away. Stability requirements within a skeletal linkage demanded a strategic, distributed stiffness to work. While not realizing it at the time, our work was converging on documenting that efficiency, speed, power and resilience came from the body being a composite structure. This is my story of convergence on appreciating fascia and its essential role in human ability.

Key Takeaways:

  • Tensegrity engineering: Without fascia, the musculoskeletal system would be weak and ineffective – see how it works
  • All muscles are agonists working within the fascial net
  • The best athletes incorporate fascial elasticity
  • Accurate technique matters
Stuart McGill is Distinguished Professor Emeritus (after 32 years at the University of Waterloo, Canada) who authored over 240 scientific journal papers, 4 books, and mentored over 40 graduate students during this scientific journey. Investigations in the laboratory, training centre and research clinic probed back injury and pain mechanisms, rehabilitation approaches, and performance training. As a consultant, he has provided expertise on low back injury to various government agencies, many corporations and legal firms and hundreds of professional/international athletes and teams worldwide. He is regularly referred special patient cases from the international medical community for opinion.
His books include Back Mechanic, written for the lay public with pain (also in 20 languages), Low Back Disorders, third edition (2016), written for clinicians, Ultimate Back Fitness and Performance, 2017, written for coaches and athletes, Gift of Injury (2018), a manual for rehabilitating the back-injured strength athlete.
