Andrzej Pilat PT
Director of the School of Myofascial Therapies Tupimek, Madrid
Topic: Fascia and the interoceptive load. The relevance of Fascia from it’s micro to macrostructure
To delve into the world of fascia, Pilat will discuss; connective tissue, fascial continuity, extracellular matrix, central sensitisation, chronic pain, and interoception.
Interoception is the homeostatic image of the physical condition of the body tissues. Muscles contraction, temperature, nociception, hunger, thirst, mechanical stress, light touch, immune and endocrine change, use these fibers to communicate their activity. Interoceptive awareness provides a measure of sympathetic and parasympathetic activity, as well as, a potential marker for deficits in self-regulation and can modulate the exteroceptive representation of the body.
Changes in the fascial system and its innervation could modify the cortical and interoceptive representation of our patients, causing imbalances. In such a way facilitating interoceptive allostatic loading, central sensitisation and chronic pain. Head to the Symposium App for the in depth look at Pilat’s incredible presentation.
