The fascial system consists of four concentric layers, with the visceral layer beginning at the naso-pharynx and ending at the anal aperture. This course will focus on theory and manual therapy technique for mobilizing fascial structures of the visceral system.

The abdomino-pelvic canister is a functional and anatomical construct comprised of the somatic structures of the abdominal cavity and pelvic basin, which work synergistically to support the midline of the body. The walls of this canister are occupied by and intimately connected to the visceral structures found within. In order to function optimally the viscera must be able to move, not only in relationship to one another, but with respect to their surrounding container.

Material will be presented that includes the science of and evidence behind the use of fascial based manual therapy with presentation of relevant visceral and fascial anatomy. Emphasis will be placed on clinical reasoning with the goal of immediate implementation of the techniques learned following this introductory course. Students will be instructed in an extensive number of treatment techniques, both external abdominal as well as internal vaginal approaches. Course participants will be able to immediately incorporate evaluation and treatment of visceral fascia for patients with a variety of urinary dysfunction diagnoses.

Mobilization of the visceral fascia requires advanced palpation skills along with extensive knowledge of visceral anatomy. This continuing education course is a two-and-a-half day seminar designed to provide comprehensive knowledge concerning the relationship between the connective tissue surrounding the visceral structures of the urologic system as it relates to physical therapy treatment. This course is geared toward the experienced pelvic health therapist who wishes to integrate advanced manual therapy skills into their treatment regime.
