Lesson 7: Transverse Plane Releases (06:22)


The diaphragm and the pelvic floor are called transverse planes. Riehl demonstrates floor tension breathing. The thoracic inlet is the space between the first ribs.

Oso, Washington Landslide (02:05)

Survivors of the tragic landslide recall their experience.

Oso Landslide Devastation (02:22)

Follow the path of the Washington landslide. Listen to 911 calls made from people in the surrounding area.

Landslides (01:57)

Learn what environmental conditions lead to a landslide in Oso, Washington.

History of Landslides (03:11)

Geologists study the hills surrounding Oso to identify previous landslides.

Rescue Efforts (02:42)

Rescue teams used thermal imaging to identify any survivors from the Oso landslide.

Landslide Survivors (03:36)

Robin Youngblood and her rescuers recount their experiences directly after the Oso landslide.

Lesson 1: Anatomy & Physiology of Fascia (05:17)

The four types of tissues that make up every structure in the body are muscle, nerves, epithelial, and connective tissues. Fibers in the body are called collagen, elastin, and ground substance.

Lesson 2: Experiencing Fascia (05:56)

Stretching should feel warm and create good sensations in your body. After approximately one minute of stretching the fascia, you should feel like a lack of movement like you have hit a barrier.

Lesson 3: Releasing the Superficial Fascia (04:39)

The superficial fascia covers the entire body. Sean Riehl refers to it as a skin bag. The skin develops from the same tissue as the brain.

Lesson 4: Scar Release (05:53)

Riehl states that myofascial release is the best way to heal scar tissue after an accident. It is important not to work on a fresh scar because new scar manipulation can cause tearing of the tissue.

Recovery Efforts (01:38)

Learn about the tactics used by recovery teams to find the missing people in Oso.

Landslides in Nepal (05:05)

Due to mountain proximity and frequent monsoons, Nepal is at high risk for landslides. Scientists use preventative measures to mitigate damage from landslides.

Heroic Landslide Rescue (03:52)

The rescue team recalls finding Amanda Skorjanc and her baby, Duke. Dane Bruner recalls searching for his sister Summer in Oso.

Lesson 5: Kinesthetic Evaluation Leg & Arm Pulls (06:14)

Kinesthetic evaluation is an easy technique to check joints in the shoulder. Riehl demonstrates how to evaluate ankles. If the hip pulls during testing you are pulling too hard.

Lesson 6: Cross Handed Stretches (05:19)

There are three basic lines of force, the lateral, anterior, and posterior. The lateral line controls movement all the way up the body.

Fascia: The Great Organizer (05:26)

Fascial sheaths surround individual nerve fibers, arteries, and veins. Connective tissue consists of nerves, arteries, veins, fat, and organs.

How to Perform Myofascial Release (04:53)

Ground substance is designed to resist force. In a liquid state collagen fibers that were once in a gelatinous state begin to lengthen.

Just before 11 a.m. on March 22, 2014, an ominous rumble startled the residents of the community of Oso, Washington. It was the terrifying sound of what would become the United States’ deadliest landslide in decades. The equivalent of one million dump truck loads of earth came plummeting down the valley. In a little over two minutes, a pile of debris up to 75 feet deep slammed into the neighborhood of close to 50 homes. While a massive search and rescue effort continues at the site, geologists are tracing the geological history of Oso to explain why the site was so unstable. But all around the world, scientists have reason to fear that the worst is yet to come. Globally, landslides and other ground failures take a tremendous human and economic toll, and with climate change bringing a sharp rise in precipitation, the threat of bigger, more frequent landslides is growing. As NOVA surveys landslide danger zones, discover how and why landslides happen, and how radar monitoring technologies could help issue life-saving warnings. Distributed by PBS Distribution.
