anatomy trains

Anatomy Trains is a unique map of the ‘anatomy of connection’ – whole-body fascial and myofascial (soft tissue) linkages. The Anatomy Trains concept joins individual muscles into functional complexes within fascial planes – each with a defined anatomy and ‘meaning’ in human movement.

Anatomy Trains leads to practical strategies to improve stability, coordination and resolve long-standing compensations in postural and movement patterns. Your fascia has long lasting changes in body structure and movement and therefore has an influence on how the body regulates its biomechanics.

The Anatomy Trains process provides the MERN Chiropractic Clinic with an understanding of whole-body patterning in posture and function – the interplay of movement and stability. For example, understanding the ‘Superficial fascial Back Line’ of the body as a whole gives us insights into hamstring problems that you cannot possibly get from considering the hamstrings alone. The ‘Spiral Line’ helps us to try and resolve rotational compensations in a way that no analysis of any single muscle can give.
