You will also gain the knowledge and ability to help your patients with IBS! This seminar is filled with nutrition and technique material that is sure to help these difficult cases in your office! Myofascial Disruption Technique The fascia can separate at the origin or insertion of a tendon or ligament. The fascia can separate within the muscle in a band like separation. It can ‘wrinkle’ like a shirt pulled out from your hamper. It can ‘un-coil’ in the extremities like a twisted slinky toy. Dr. Hayes repairs the fascia by 'ironing the wrinkle', meaning he re-attaches the fascia which eliminates your pain.
