CONNECT2017 was held at Ulm University from March 16 to 19, 2017. Over 250 participants visited the congress with two days of excellent keynote speeches of international researchers.
Now you can watch these 13 recorded lectures from Internationally renowned scientists at your own pace. The videos of the presentation are recorded in mp4-format available on a USB-stick.
This series brings fascia into the focus of sports medicine, rehabilitation, and physical therapy: fascia are trainable, important for muscular power transmission, as a sensory organ, for storing elastic energy and frequently, they are accountable for pain symptoms. Targeted fascia training is a new area within the field of Sports Medicine to treat and prevent facial pain syndromes and to increase overall physical performance. Aspects of overloaded collagenous connective tissue are increasingly investigated, to be able to give recommendations regarding dosage and frequency of fascial training.
