The importance of fascia and the fascial system in both movement and impaired movement has grown in recent decades along with the knowledge base about it to the point now that we understand that fascia, along with muscles, is involved in force transmission, which leads us to the role of the myofascial system. The book Fascia in Sport and Movement second edition (edited by Robert Schleip and Jan Wilke) is a compendium of the most up-to-date information about the structure and function of fascia and its impact on improving strength, mobility and performance and reducing pain and injury, with contributions from 51 leading teachers and practitioners. This article has been extracted from Chapter 31 ‘Functional training methods for the runner’s myofascial systems’ by Dr Wilbour Kelsick and will allow you to treat your runners’ injuries and to deliver performance improvements by developing training programmes for the body as a whole and not just strengthening one isolated segment.
