It is well established that the prevalence rate of musculoskeletal pain is significantly higher in women compared to men and that the fascial tissue plays a key role in pain mechanisms.
Knowledge about how sex hormone disorders can dysregulate the fascial tissue is an important step towards understanding gender differences in myofascial pain.
In this masterclass, Italian researcher Dr Caterina Fede shows how hormonal imbalances in women can impact the extracellular matrix synthesis, modifying the biomechanical properties of tissue and evoking the sensitization of fascial nociceptors. You will see how this has implications for movement, training and manual therapy protocols.
