Principallybased on dissections of hundreds of un-embalmed human cadavers over the pastdecade, Functional Atlas of the Human Fascial Systempresents a new vision of the human fascial systemusing anatomical and histological photographs along with histological analysisand biomechanical evaluation.
DrCarla Stecco brings together the research of amulti-specialist team of researchers and clinicians consisting of anatomists,biomechanical engineers, physiotherapists, osteopaths and plastic surgeons. Togetherwith this anatomical research and the biomechanical model used, the Atlas helpsto explain how fascia plays a part in myofascialdysfunction and disease as well as how it may alter muscle function and disturbproprioceptive input. Dr Steccoalso highlights the continuity of the fascial planes,explaining the function of the fasciae and their connection between muscles,nerves and blood vessels. This understanding will help guide the practitionerin selecting the proper technique for a specific fascialproblem with a view to enhancing manual therapy methods.
FunctionalAtlas of the Human Fascial System opens with thefirst chapter classifying connective tissue and explaining its composition interms of percentages of fibres, cells and extracellular matrix. The secondchapter goes on to describe the general characteristics of the superficialfascia from a macroscopic and microscopic point of view; while the thirdanalyzes the deep fascia in the same manner. The subsequent five chaptersdescribe the fasciae from a topographical perspective. In this part of theAtlas, common anatomical terminology is used throughout to refer to the variousfascia and it also stresses the continuity of fasciabetween the different bodily regions.
