Fascia or loose connective tissue is the body's collagenous fibrous network. It plays a much more active role than previously thought. The ability of fascia to change its stiffness independently of neuromuscular control, its role as a potential pain generator, and its function as our richest sensory organ for body perception. New insights into a complex connection between fascia and the autonomic nervous system, emotions, and the immune system are now subject of many research studies.
If common treatments do not resolve your health issue, find a manual therapist that follows recent Fascia Research.
