Fascial Manipulation – Stecco Method


The Stecco Fascial Manipulation course for podiatrists is a UNIQUE learning opportunity for you and your practice. A chance to:

  • Gain insights and practical skills in working with Deep Muscular Fascia of the low limb.
  • Acquire key skills to aid people in reducing or managing pain and restoring movement quality.
  • Learn these from leading fascial manipulation practitioners, drawing on knowlege of some of the leading researchers into fascia that informs the course.



You learn a  soft tissue manipulation technique to deep muscular fascia, working from the pelvis to the toes.  The course provides:

  •  A detailed approach for  assessing, diagnosing, treating physical contributors of pain experience, or limited function, that may not lie in muscle, tendons, joints direct  but in  associated  connective tissue, the Deep Fascia.
  • A potential way to quickly empower some patients towards self management and recovery. Especially if one reason they struggle to self manage and improve arises from physical reasons for pain. 

Clinical Value

Undertaken within a biopsychosocial framework, Fascial Manipulation:

  • May provide long lasting reduction or resolution of physical contributors behind a pain experience. And subsequently may resolve pain.
  • May enable swifter progression to self management via exercise and movement.
  • May reduce physical contributors enough to aid improve the psychosocial situation.
  • Can aid avoiding the issues of dependency upon the practitioner that might arise when we work with individuals.
  • Can reduce tendency for use of language that might lead to catastrophising.

All of which fit well within todays understanding of the biopsychosocial umbrella of working with people

Fascial Manipulation Stecco Course Testimonials

A fantatic course….already helped our patients…thank you Ian for introducing myself and the team to FM.

Ben H.  

It was a privilege to attend the level 1 course….a lot to learn in the 4 days….took Antonio Stecco’s advice and started with it on the Monday…..since then been amazed at how this technique augments treatment approaches

Iain J

I find the joint mobilisation and fascial manipulation techniques to be an overall part of my assessment……From a surgical perspective the techniques have resulted in many patients not having to undergo surgical procedures as well as managing post-operative complications resulting from abnormal gait patterns.
