Introduction, p.19 …. Im reading about superficial fascia and guess what:

"Immediately subjacent is an enveloping layer of
dense and areolar connective tissue and fat called
the superficial fascia"

In Stecco’s 'fascial manipulation...' is sad that its loose CT,

In this book is sad that.:
“fascia superficialis” for the loose layer of subcutaneous tissue lying superficial
to the denser layer of “fascia profunda“ ...
1・6 / p37 A misspelling.
However, parts of these back muscles bride the sacroiliac joint.
Isn't it?
any Please provide a bibliographic list the seachable citation of the studies that demonstrate the efficacy of manual techniques using this technique in the treatment of any human condition. This list might be used and correspond with footnotes throughout the chapters in order to provide the reader with a basis for clinical decision-making. Thank you. lewis@camosun.bc.ca

Ch.4.2, p.158 right column, line 4: "comparable to that reported in ... frozen frozen lumbars" is a typo. It should be " comparable to .... frozen shoulder".

chapter 4.3 page 167 When the author Frans Van den Berg talks about the structure of collagen network, he says that : "the physical law according to which force is the product of mass and velocity…". This is a HUGE MISTAKE. the force is the product of the mass per acceleration (F= M x A), that is the variation of velocity with time A= dV/dT. I think that in a scientific publication there must be no space for such mistakes. this is because most of the manual therapists have not strong scientific background.

4.5 page 177 The statement 'Water molecules seem to build icosahedron is not substantiated'. This idea seems to come from the ancient Greek Platonic Solids concept which was intuitive at their time. terra rosa

Ch.2.1, p. 77 The statement that fascia "possesses a ten times higher quantity of sensory receptors than its red muscular counter part (van der Wal 2009)" is incorrect. It should be edited to "is innervated by approximately 6 times as many sensory nerves than its red muscular counter part (Mitchell & Schmidt 1977)". In extension the following sentence can then be added (thanks to Tom Findley, for pointing this out!): "Additionally even the spindle receptors in the muscles are themselves found primarily only in areas with force transfer from muscle to connective tissues (van der Wal 2009)".

ch.2.2, p. 82 Fig. 2.2.1 Picture E looks like a Golgi Tendon Organ. Maybe this picture should be used as D; and then a new picture of a muscle spindle should be inserted at E? Robert Heiduk
Ch 4.2, p.162 In the legend of Fig.4.2.4 the concluding remark "From Friedl 2004, with permission" should be taken off. The picture has nothing to do with this reference and was drawn by the publisher based on a sketch drawing from me. Robert Schleip
cover Color and contrast of the main picture on the cover looks almost a bit 'gray & dirty'. I suggest to look for more 'shiny' contrasts and colors in the next edition.
Also the word 'fascia' could profit from more contrast.

Ch 1.6 The new paper by Willard et al. in J Anat on "The thoracolumbar fascia: anatomy, function and clinical considerations" should be mentioned in the text and included in the references. Robert Schleip
Ch.2.1, p. 78 typo in third paragraph:
"basing their concepts to some exten on..."
should be "... extent ..."

ch.2.2, p. 82 Fig.2.2.1 E. The image of a muscle spindle could be improved. The current version seems to be a very old image how the spindle used to be depicted in the 1980ies. While not being 'wrong', it certainly could be improved.
