We Know We Have Fascia Only When it Hurts

Our body consists of bones, muscles, organs, arteries and veins. And then there is everything else, the tissue that connects those muscles bones, nerves and blood vessels. The fascial tissue is connected into a large net covering our entire body. But, you may ask, if it is so important, how so we never hear about it? Scientists accept that the fascial tissue is a Cinderella of orthopedic research, and that the fascial network, which is body-wide, may play a much more important role in musculoskeletal medicine than is previously assumed.

Fascial tissue and pain

Often, if we have unexplained pain, it is linked to fascia. Don”t be surprised if your doctor misdiagnoses it. It seams that fitness trainers are more in tune with fascial tissue issues than medical practitioners.

Fascial tissue is full of nerves and it can easily get hurt. When healthy, the fascia is relaxed and it can stretch and move. When hurt, fascia becomes tight, less mobile, restricted, and, regardless of the point that is damaged, a source of tension to the entire body. Most commonly, fascia gets damaged by physical or emotional trauma, inflammation or scarring, whiplash, repetitive motion, prolonged lack of motion or surgery. Damaged fascial tissue affects the entire body, causing headaches, chronic pain and problem moving.

Fascial network and fitness

Since fascial tissue injury is the most frequent injury in athletes, learning how to adapt training to make fascial tissue more elastic and less prone to damage is now at the forefront of athletic training development. Fascial fitness training was the hottest training trend in 2011.
