Fascia Research III

FASCIA RESEARCH - Basic Science and Implications for Conventional and Complementary Health Care. Editors: Thomas W. Findley & Robert Schleip

Fascia is the soft tissue component of the connective tissue system that permeates the human body. It forms a wholebody continuous three-dimensional matrix of structural support. It interpenetrates and surrounds all organs, muscles, bones and nerve fibers, creating a unique environment for body systems functioning.

There is a substantial body of research on connective tissue generally focused on specialized genetic and molecular aspects of the extracellular matrix. The study of fascia and its function as an organ of support has advanced since the Fascia Research Congresses in 2007 and 2009.

The purpose of this book is to organize relevant information for scientists involved in the research of the body’s connective tissue matrix (fascia) as well as professionals involved in the therapeutic manipulation of this body wide structural fabric. It includes background full text papers from a wide range of journals and abstracts presented at the Third International Fascia Research Congress: Basic Science and Implications for Conventional and Complementary Healthcare, March 28–30, 2012, Vancouver BC (www.fasciacongress.org/2012). These are divided into sections on:

• Fluid Dynamics
• Cytology & Histology
• Mechanotrasduction and Biomechanics
• Gross Anatomy
• Surgery and Scars
• Pathology
• Pain and Innervation
• Therapy
• Research Methods, Imaging and Hypotheses


The previous conference books for 2007 and 2009 are also available:
Volume I:  EURO 48,50
Volume II: EURO 48,50
