Jacques Courseault, MD, CAQSM , FAAPMRMedical Director
Dr. Jacques Courseault is the Founder and Medical Director of The Fascia Institute and Treatment Center. He is a Sports Medicine physician with 10 years of ultrasound expertise and is a pioneer in fascia treatment and hydrodissection. He is the first to publish on fascial hydrodissection for chronic hamstring injuries. This treatment is beneficial for many injuries that are non-surgical. He is a consultant for various NFL and collegiate teams, treats former NFL athletes and is a Team Physician for Tulane Athletics and NOLA Gold major league rugby.

He also one of the few experts in the world in evaluating and treating patients and athletes with hypermobile (flexible/double-jointed) body types. This specialty clinic is in high demand and sees patients from different countries.

WHAT WE DO

A team of experts in fascia science, with a realization of the importance of fascial connections in the context of mobility, performance and pain relief.

The ultrasound image above displays fascia that is too thick in the lower back. This patient has been experiencing back pain for many years without relief. With a fascial hydrorelease and physical therapy focusing on biotensegrity, the patient continued living her life pain-free.

Although fascia has been studied for centuries, only recently can fascia be evaluated in real-time with the use of ultrasound imaging. At the Fascia Institute and Treatment Center, our team will evaluate your biomechanics and assess for fascial restrictions. Some fascial restrictions are not painful, but can limit performance. In other cases, fascia is painful and once assessed can be treated with various modalities.

OUR UNIQUE PROCESS

Although we evaluate each patient on a case by case basis, this is a guide to the services and procedures we provide to our patients.

EXTENSIVE HISTORY

Not only do we focus on your fascia and musculoskeletal system, we also ask relevant questions about your overall health.

HANDS-ON ASSESSMENT

Each patient undergoes a thorough, hands-on physical exam and ultrasound examination of areas of concern. Further evaluation will be based on the initial assessment.

PERSONALIZED PLAN

Your specific plan will be based on the outcomes of your assessments. There is no “cookie-cutter” plan for treating fascia, a very complex organ.

OUR COMMITMENT

We are committed to improving performance and quality of life for every patient we work with.

The human body is complex and treating certain injuries can be challenging. However, working with musculoskeletal experts with additional expertise in assessing and treating fascia, outcomes are clearly better. Because we are affiliated with Tulane University School of Medicine, we have access to other physician specialty experts and researchers who we work with to solve the most complicated cases.
