“Myofascial chains and musculoskeletal pain? Could there be a relationship?”
Treatments based on myofascial chains have become popular in recent years. This may be due to recent research findings indicating structural in-series continuity of skeletal muscles as well as mechanical force transmission effects between them. However, although experimental data from the laboratory suggests potentially relevant mutual interactions produced by constituents of myofascial chains, the clinical relevant under clinical in vivo settings is yet to be elucidated. From an evidence-oriented perspective, this lecture provides manual therapists with a background for non-local treatments of healthy individuals and persons suffering from musculoskeletal disorders.
