Oh that FASCIA…?

Fascia is the biological fabric that holds us together, the connective tissue network. You are about 70 trillion cells – neurons, muscle cells, epithelia – all humming in relative harmony; fascia is the 3-D spider web of fibrous, gluey, and wet proteins that binds them all together in their proper placement. Reference-*Anatomy Trains

Understanding fascia is essential to the dance between stability and movement – crucial in high performance, central in recovery from injury and disability, and ever-present in our daily life from our embryological beginnings to the last breath we take. Reference-*Anatomy Trains

Basically it’s the sliding sheaths between our muscles that allow for mobility and it is the mainframe web that communicates/innervates our muscles asking them to move. When the fascia is casted by poor movement patterns or chronic sitting it doesn’t slide and communication breaks down. This changes our bones alignment and creates chronic pain.
