Understanding Your Fascia By Julia Lucas (June 10, 2011) Fascia may be the missing piece for your lingering injury. Under your skin, encasing your body and webbing its way through your insides like spider webs, is fascia.
When we start to understand the concept of fascia, we can truly grasp why our body may start to feel pain in our right shoulder and then before know it, our left hip and our left toe! It seems to transcend our understanding. Before we understand it, we can get confused, frustrated and end up feeling like a victim in our own body. Because the fascia is one continuous layer that literally encircles and encases our whole body, we can understand why and how this pain patterns develop…
Fascia seems to be the new trending word in the health and fitness industries. During my entire career as a manual therapist, I’ve worked with professional athletes who suffered from fascial restrictions. Yet, when I would say the word “fascia” to my clients, the question I typically got was “what is fascia?” Even some of those with medical backgrounds were fuzzy on the role fascia plays in our day-to-day.
Have you heard of Fascia? It is the connective tissue that wraps around, attaches to, separates, and stabilizes your muscles & internal organs. Fascia can get adheared & cause tightness & pain in your body. Massage is a great way to release stuck fascia and feel good. Freedom Massage, 610-644-9003 or freedommassage.com
