Fascia’s function: Classical osteopathic perspectives and current research compared

In the Fascia Science and Clinical Applications section of the July  issue of The Journal of Bodywork & Movement Therapies (JBMT), a review by  Findley & Shalwala describes and evaluates the remarkable levels of agreement that exist between early 20th Century osteopathic thinking, and current fascial research findings.

This paper reviews the perspectives as laid out by Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of osteopathic medicine, and evidence presented at the first three Fascia Research Congresses (Boston 2007, Amsterdam 2009, Vancouver 2012).
