The understanding of fascia and its function in the body has blossomed over the past decade. The complex relationships between fascia, muscles and joints will often dictate the variations in response to treatments that therapists provide or the exercise programs that they recommend. If you are interested in functional exercise the Tom Myers 2nd Edition of Anatomy Trains is an essential addition to your library. By using Myofascial Meridians, Myers provides a unique new map of the fascial connections through the muscles that leads to new understanding of the connectivity in the body, and directly to new therapeutic strategies, especially for long-standing compensatory patterns in client stance and movement.
It is a very well illustrated book which explains how patterns of strain communicate through the myofascial webbing, contributing to postural compensation and movement stability.
