Fascia in Sport and Movement, Second edition is a multi-author book with contributions from 51 leading teachers and practitioners across the entire spectrum of bodywork and movement professions.  It provides professionals from all bodywork and movement specialisms with the most up-to-date information they need for success in teaching, training, coaching, strengthening, tackling injury, reducing pain, and improving mobility.

The new edition has 21 new chapters, and chapters from the first edition have been updated with new research.

This book is an essential resource for all bodywork professionals – sports coaches, fitness trainers, yoga teachers, Pilates instructors, dance teachers and manual therapists. It explains and demonstrates how an understanding of the structure and function of fascia can inform and improve your clinical practice.

The book’s unique strength lies in the breadth of its coverage, the expertise of its authorship and the currency of its research and practice base.

Fascia in Sport and Movement, Second edition:

  • Enhances the knowledge of the sports professional, yoga teacher and Pilates instructor, enabling them to better understand and manage soft tissue injuries
  • Offers the movement and manual therapist information on how different activities influence the body’s soft tissue matrix, and the types of injuries which may occur
  • Is compiled and edited by Dr Robert Schleip and Dr Jan Wilke, two of the foremost researchers in the field of fascia for sport and movement
  • Assembles a team of experts who provide a thorough and engaging distillation of the latest research and its practical applications

 

New content for the second edition!

  • New chapters cover the influence of sex hormones on fascial connective tissues; plus the topics of nutrition, fluid dynamics, biotensegrity, hypo-and hypermobility, injury prevention and oncology.
  • The section on clinical applications is now expanded by new chapters on eccentric training, foam rolling, walking, throwing, footwear, fascial strength training, mental imagery and more.
  • Exciting new answers to clinical questions and problems and a multitude of reliable and novel information
  • New inspiring questions, careful hypothetical speculations, as well as valuable clinical observations
  • A completely new section (See Section 2) on assessment methods and including new chapter contributions on joint mobility examination, ultrasound imaging techniques and mechanical assessment

 

‘Fascia in Sport and Movement is the best source to date on the practical applications of fascia science to athletics and movement disciplines. It is essential reading for coaches, athletes, trainers, movement teachers, manual therapists, as well as anyone else interested in how fascial understanding can improve performance, expression, and movement freedom.’ Til Luchau, Director of Advanced-Trainings.com and author of Advanced Myofascial Techniques
