How can Myofascial Release help you?
What is Fascia?
Fascia is best described as a three dimensional web that runs throughout your entire body. Fascia covers and interpenetrates every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein. It also surrounds all of your internal organs including the heart, lungs brain and spinal cord. Think of the segments of an orange, this best illustrates how your fascial system works and separates everything.
Trauma, environmental stress, repetitive motions, inflammation and injury can all impact how tight and restricted your fascia becomes. Any abnormal tightness binds down your body, making it unable to function the way it was designed to with extremely limited ranges of motion. This creates imbalances, postural compensations, limited range of motion and pain patterns that are seemingly unexplainable. Restricted fascia does NOT show up in typical medical tests.
A high percentage of people experiencing these symptoms may be experiencing fascial restrictions or adhesions. If not released, the fascia continues constrict eventually affecting other parts of the body.
