Wer in Alltag und Sport beweglich, vital und schmerzfrei bleiben will, sollte etwas für sein Bindegewebe tun! Diese Erkenntnis setzt sich in den letzten Jahren in Physiotherapie, Sportwissenschaft und Medizin mehr und mehr durch. Denn das muskuläre Bindegewebe – die sogenannten Faszien – spielt eine große Rolle für Wohlbefinden, Beweglichkeit, Leistungsfähigkeit und Gesundheit: Sie übertragen die Kraft der Muskeln, kommunizieren mit dem Nervensystem, dienen als Sinnesorgan, sorgen für Schutz und Stoffaustausch der inneren Organe und bilden die Grundlage für eine schöne Körperform. Was man bisher nur Muskeln zutraute, kann auch das Bindegewebe: Es reagiert auf Belastung und Reize und wenn Faszien verfilzen oder verkleben, können Schmerzen und Bewegungsprobleme die Folge sein. Die Faszien sollten deshalb gezielt trainiert werden – 10 Minuten zweimal in der Woche genügen! Wie sich die neuen Erkenntnisse in ein praktisches Übungsprogramm für den Alltag umsetzen lassen, zeigt dieses Buch des führenden deutschen Faszienforschers und Rolfing-Therapeuten Robert Schleip. Mit Übungsfotos, Einblick in die Wissenschaft von den Faszien, Tipps und Adressen.
