Fascia and Pain

What is fascia’s role in pain? Fascia is involved in force transmission, lubrication, and cellular communication. It protects, connects and separates of all other structures and therefore must play a role in dysfunction and pain. This lecture will discuss what happens when fascia becomes injured and how it compounds body dysfunction. Scar tissue and adhesions will also be discussed including their contribution to structural imbalances, physiological distress and ultimately pain.

Spinal Decompression Using the Spinal Backrack System

All back pain is caused by bone deformity, nerve and disc pathology directly linked to compression. This seminar will demonstrate how Backrack works directly on the cause of backpain, decompressing the spine, hence treating the causes rather than symptoms of pain. It was developed exclusively for spinal joint decompression for back pain sufferers by B.M Luklinski. It's based on a unique concept and application in back pain treatment and prevention and is effective and safe to use.
