Fascia: Is it slowing you down?

Do you remember that old song, “Dry Bones” – The hip bone connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone connected to the knee bone, the knee bone connected to the shin bone? As it turns out, this song describes the nature of fascia.

Fascia is one of the most under studied systems of the body. So, what is Fascia and why should you care?

Fascia is the connective tissue that gives our body its shape and connects all the structures of the body. The body’s internal knitted sweater, fascia is a cobweb like structure that has a property called thixotropy. Due to thixotropy, fascia moves between a firm, gel-like state to a less viscous, fluid like state.

Factors that influence our fascia to remain fluid and leave us more flexible are hydration, heat, and movement. This is why we feel stiff first thing in the morning upon waking up, then as you drink water and move around our body begins to loosen.

Due to postural abnormalities and distorted, inefficient movement patterns our body begins to develop patterns of dysfunction and our fascia tightens unevenly throughout the body. When we exercise, we reinforce these patterns of dysfunction making them harder to get rid of. Over time, these memorized patterns of dysfunction will lead to injury. One hundred percent of all soft tissue pain and dysfunction involves our fascia.

“The Fascia forms the largest system in the body as it is the system that touches all other systems.” – James L. Oschman, PhD
