The Importance of Palpatory Anatomy

Palpation Tips on October 25th, 2010 No Comments

I’ve been thinking alot about the importance of Palpatory Anatomy as it relates to any practitioner who is involved in healthcare and fitness. The human body is a vehicle in which we all drive around in and perform our daily routines from. We dont really appreciate all the unique features and functions of the body until something goes wrong – like we break a leg or injure our back. Then it is becomes completely clear how important this amazing vehicle is and how important it is to take care of it. As a bodyworker I take pride in knowing as much as I can about every fascial sheath, muscle, tendon, ligament, joint, disc and bone in the human body. For me this knowledge translates into confidence and confidence allows my clients to trust me to do the best that I can to help them recover from an injury or to just plain relax and de-stress. So the combination of confidence and trust creates an environment where therapeutic exchange is possible, no matter what technique,exercise or procedure is being perform. If there is good intention and the client is receptive then the result should be positive. That, I realized is the ultimate goal of MyoFinder – to be a facilitator of  anatomical knowledge that will ensure positive outcomes.
