Bozeman, MT Chiropractor, Dr. Jonathan Wilhelm, DC, CCSP, CCEP, CKTP, of ProChiropractic recently received training and obtained his certification in Fascial Manipulation. Training took place in Newark, NJ and was conducted by international myofascial experts, Dr. Warren Hammer, PHD, and Dr. Antonio Stecco, MD.
The Fascial Manipulation certification is awarded after physicians complete over 50 hours of specialized training. Fascial manipulation is manual therapy treatment technique that focuses on a specific, localized area of limited movement. This technique allows Dr. Wilhelm to work beyond the site of perceived pain to target the origin of the pain and increase movement to that area.
Fascial manipulation is used to treat the fascia, a structure of connective tissue anchored to bone, that surrounds muscles, blood vessels, and nerves, binds some structures together, while permitting others to slide smoothly over each other. As the body moves, free nerve endings of the fascia become tense whenever any movement occurs, resulting in an underlying pain that is difficult to treat without this technique.
Fascial manipulation effectively treats difficult and unresponsive musculoskeletal and chronic pain conditions, including athletic injuries, repetitive stress injuries, and fibromyalgia. This training is new to the United States, and is currently taught in Europe and across the world. Dr. Wilhelm is thefirst physician in Montana to certify in this treatment approach.
