Warren Hammer authored some of the first articles and books I read as I was starting into grad school. He’s been practicing using various soft tissue methods since the 1960’s… he landed on Facial Manipulation as his main tool. I couldn’t help but reach out to him to see what he has learned over the past 50 years of soft tissue work, clinical experience and research. You’ll enjoy his passion!


Here’s some topics we hit:

  • What kind of injuries or cases can fascial work assist with?
  • What is Fascia?
  • Does fascia have pain receptors?
  • Why does fascia get restrictions and what is the physical “sticking?”
  • How is Fascial work any different than foam rolling, massage, ART, graston etc
  • Explain the receptor system
  • How can fascial manipulation assist in movement patterns?
  • Research surrounding fascia work

Take the seminar by Warren Hammer here.

Warren Hammer Bio: In Chiropractic practice since 1960.  Subsequently obtained an MS degree and a diplomate in Chiropractic Orthopedics.  Realizing the importance of soft tissue with respect to the treatment of joints I took many courses in soft tissue methods. Since 1985 I have lectured nationally and internationally on soft tissue methods.  Some of the soft tissue methods taught were Cyriax’s Friction Massage, Strain/Counterstrain, Post Facilitation Stretch, Myofascial Release, Muscle Energy, Graston Technique, Mattes’ Active Isolated Stretch, Mulligan methods, Voyer’s ELDOA technique and others.  Authored and edited three editions of a text “Functional Soft-Tissue Examination and Treatment by Manual Methods” and more than 300 articles on soft tissue subjects, some of which are peer reviewed. Became a certified FM instructor in 2013.   Invited Antonio Stecco to the U.S. about 5 years ago to teach FM and the rest is history…
