Objectives: The study of the fascial system is of increasing interest to researchers and clinicians. The aim of this paper is to explore how physiotherapists integrate the Danis Bois Method (DBM) Fasciatherapy into their daily practice and whether or not it contributes to pain management.
Methods: A questionnaire with 2 closed questions (assessing their view on the effectiveness of fasciatherapy in the reduction of physical pain and mental suffering) and 2 open-ended questions (which type(s) of pain are best treated) was sent to 446 French physiotherapists trained as DBM fasciatherapists.
Results: The DBM Fasciatherapy trained physiotherapists express a strong sense of improvement of their effectiveness on both physical pain and psychical suffering. This improvement is most noticeable on headaches, neck pain, acute low back pain, chronic low back pain, and migraines.
Conclusion: This study gives an insight into the value of using the DBM Fasciatherapy in the management of pain.
