Combining compression and shear force to reach and alter a fascial densification

To reach a densification in the deep fascia, sufficient compression must be applied perpendicular to the tissue surface. Then, while maintaining this, a shear force (tangential friction) is applied in the direction of most restriction. While there are tools that can apply compression, there is no tool that can apply simultaneous compression and shear (friction) except a clinician. Courtesy of the Fascial Manipulation Association.
