Event Details

This is an exciting new workshop specifically for therapists who already have fundamental fascial/myofascial skills and wish to enhance their skills for sports performance and rehabilitation.

Fascia 4 Sport is delivered in a 2-day attendance workshop and a 1-day online theory course providing 3 days of CPD.

The Fascia 4 Sport workshop incorporates theory, current research and a variety of fascial approaches focusing on the restoration of altered or inhibited function in fascial tissue caused by acute and chronic sports injuries.  It is a practical oriented workshop designed to deliver an integrated, whole-body approach to the treatment of some of the most common sporting injuries that affect both amateur and elite athletes.

Using a combination of on line study and practical techniques, therapists will learn advanced manual therapy skills for working with athletes and is designed to:-

  • Regain structural stability, strength, balance and coordination
  • Restore and enhance tissue fluidity and joint range of motion
  • Facilitate the body’s ability to adapt to changing physical, environmental and sport specific demands
  • Promote maximum functional movement potential and efficiency
  • Contribute to overall performance enhancement in the sporting environment

At the conclusion of the workshop participants will have a fantastic array of techniques to apply in a sporting context whether they are working in a club environment or working individually with amateur, professional or elite athletes across a number of sporting disciplines.

At the conclusion of the workshop participants will be able to:-

  • Select, demonstrate and apply both direct and indirect myofascial approaches for sporting injuries
