A myofascial chain is a line of connective tissue that runs throughout the body. These chains are important for functional movement, coordination and stability, and they help the body move as a unit. They can, however, also be a cause of pain and structural weakness. By understanding myofascial chains, you can better understand injuries and movement limitations. In this course, the second in a series on upper limb myofascial pain, you will learn about the four myofascial chains of the arm.


This course aims to introduce the myofascial chains of the upper limb and describe how myofascial dysfunction can present in a clinical setting.


This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
