Improve pain by understanding the connections between the body and muscles and fascia

What is Anatomy Trains?

Anatomy Trains is an approach that focuses on the body's fascia (connective tissue) and attempts to understand the chain connections between muscles and tissues. Fascia is a membranous tissue that envelops the entire body, wrapping and connecting individual muscles and organs and plays a role in maintaining coordination and balance throughout the body. At Anatomy Trains, when investigating the causes of body movement, posture, and pain, we emphasize connections throughout the whole body, rather than just isolated muscles or parts.

12 main fascial lines

Anatomy Trains has the following 12 main fascia lines. Each line is associated with a specific body part or movement.

Superficial Front Line

Superficial Back Line

Lateral Line

Spiral Line

Deep Front Line

Deep Back Line

Arm Lines

Leg Lines

Posterior Arm Line

Forearm Functional Line

Lateral Leg Line

Front Functional Line

muscles of each fascial line

Now, let's list the muscles related to each fascial line: two lower limbs, two upper body muscles, one neck muscle, and one head muscle.

Superficial Front Line:

Lower limbs: Gastrocnemius, Tibialis Anterior

Upper body: tibialis anterior (Rectus Abdominis), sternocleidomastoid muscle (Sternocleidomastoid)

Cervical: Masseter

Head: Frontalis muscle (Frontalis)

Superficial Back Line:

Lower limbs: Hamstrings, Gluteus Maximus

Upper body: Trapezius, Latissimus Dorsi

Neck: Sternocleidomastoid muscle

Head: Occipitalis

Lateral Line:

Lower limbs: Gastrocnemius, Peroneus

Upper body: Gluteus Medius, External Obliques

Neck: Trapezius

Head: Temporalis

Spiral Line:

Lower limbs: Adductors, Extensor hallucis longus

Upper body: Internal Obliques, Serratus Posterior Superior

Neck: Trapezius

Head: Parietal muscle (Epicranial Aponeurosis)

Deep Front Line:

Lower limbs: quadratus lumborum (Psoas), rectus femoris (Rectus Femoris)

Upper body: Transversus Abdominis, Diaphragm

Neck: Hyoglossus

Head: Anterior Scalene

The base of treatment at Chiropractic Clinic Tateya is Anatomy Trains

At Chiropractic Clinic Teateya, we perform treatments based on Anatomy Trains. Anatomy Trains' approach explores the root causes of pain and discomfort by considering the body's overall coordination and balance, rather than looking at individual parts in isolation. Adjusting and balancing the fascial lines promotes improvement of the movement and posture of the entire body.

Pain can be alleviated remotely

Anatomy Trains' approach is excellent in that it allows us to remotely alleviate pain and discomfort by understanding the connections within the body. For example, if you have knee pain, the cause may not be limited to the knee itself, but may also be related to lower back or ankle problems. By applying Anatomy Trains, we can identify the root cause of pain and perform comprehensive treatment even from a remote location.

Treatments at Chiropractic Clinic Teateya, based on the philosophy of Anatomy Trains, emphasize the overall balance of the body and aim to improve sustainable health and athletic performance. Please try Anatomy Trains' approach and regain your original health and beauty of movement.
