What is Fascia?
Updated: Nov 23, 2019
Fascia is an often overlooked connective tissue that envelopes almost every structure in the human body. While the science is continuously emerging on its role within the body, there are some notable dynamics that fascia is responsible for which are worth paying attention to:
Fascia has the ability to contract and lengthen on its own, independent of muscle fiber contraction.
Fascia has a network of hydration that is intimately linked with your nervous system.
It can have a profound influence on pain and dysfunction within the body.
Manual Therapy has been found to help introduce hydration into dry and stiff areas of muscle.
