When a triggerband is put under undue stress that leads to a rotation, splitting or calcification of the fascia the patient describes a searing pain and points with several fingers along a line.

This distortation can be treated by applying heavy pressure to the affected structure to derotate, to close or to decalcify it.


Continuum Distorsions

A continuum distortion is often the result of a injury in the transitional area between the fascia tissue and the bone. The body loses its ability to respond correctly to external forces in the transitional area. Patients will point with one finger at the point(s) of pain. By applying heavy pressure to this point we encourage the transitional area to be able to accept reasonable external forces again.


Folding Distortions

Compression or traction forces together with a rotation can cause pain deep within a joint and produce folding distortions. This results in not just a restriction of movement but also a feeling of instability. This can be corrected by traction and compression manipulation.


Herniated Triggerpoints

Herniated triggerpoints, injuries where tissues that normally lay underneath the fascia have bulged through the fascia and have become stuck there.

The patient describes a dull as well as a tense pain. By means of heavy pressure eon the HTP the tissue can be pressed into its original position.


Cylinder Distortions

Cylinder distortions are tangled coils of cylinder fascia. The ability of the fascia to uncoil and recoil is restricted and maybe even lost.

The body language of the patient with a cylinder distortion is extremely varied. Mostly they will run a flat hand over the affected area. The injury is also treated is by using a flat hand and applying pressure to the area.


Tectonic Fixations

Tectonic fixation is defined as a physiological alteration where the fascial surface has lost its ability to glide naturally. This is painless. Patients often complain of a complete restriction of movement. The treatment of large joints that have indications of tectonic fixations is very strenuous for the therapist and patient.
