Fascial Abrasion Technique for Healthcare Professionals - FAT-Tool

Event date: 4/20/2019 Export event

Participants learn how to use the FAT-Tool to assess and treat common soft tissue clinical conditions. The intensive 1 day course includes a mixture of classroom presentations and practical lab sessions addressing the key principles and concepts associated with diagnosing soft tissue injuries and using the Fascial Abrasion Techniques and Tools.Healthcare Professionals can effectively use them to help manage a number of musculoskeletal injuries such as plantar fascitis, lateral epicondylitis, patelar  tendonitis, adhesions from old myofascial tears, etc.
InstructorAndrew Miller
Subject BreakdownFascial Abrasion Technique, using the specially designed FAT-Tool, involves releasing movement-restricted fascial tension in underlying soft tissues. This technique specifically targets and loosens the fascia that surrounds and interconnects muscle tissue. When tight, the fascia can restrict range of motion and impair quality of movement. • List procedures for identifying musculature, neural tissue, and bony landmarks utilizing palpation (Knowledge) • Able to describe what the current research says about the role of fascia in human movement (Knowledge) • Explain the mechanism through which aberrant tissue tension develops in the body (Understanding) • Defines what normal limits are for Joint Range of Motion and soft tissue extensibility (Knowledge) • Explains what soft tissue dysfunction is (Understanding) • Identify soft tissue dysfunction by palpation or by using an instrument (Understanding) • Able to make use of an instrument to loosen areas where abnormal tissue tension is present (Applying) • Able to break down areas of dysfunction using movement screening (Analyzing) • Able to compare normal vs abnormal tissue in the area of dysfunction identified by screening (Evaluate) • Able to develop an integrated plan for treating soft tissue dysfunction utilizing screening procedures, passive/active assessments, palpation, hands, and the FAT Tool (Creating)
