So, What is Fascia?

Fascia is the only body system that touches and interacts with every other part of your body. It literally connects us from head to toe like a 3-dimensional web. 

Under healthy circumstances, our fascia is relaxed and able to stretch in response to the physical demands we put on our body. It's our natural shock absorber. The fascia protects our body by bracing during an impact, trauma, surgery, or stressful situation. And, it can become solidified with repeated inflammation, overuse, poor posture, disease, physical or emotional trauma and surgery causing chronic pain and limitations of motion throughout the body. These fascial restrictions can put up to 2,000 pounds of pressure per square inch on these pain sensitive structures which can create the feeling of a "pull", "drag" or "straight jacket".
Fascia does not show up on standard tests such as X-rays, MRI's, CAT scans, or electromyography which may be why people go undiagnosed or even misdiagnosed. 

 

We take a whole-body approach to identifying and treating fascial restrictions. We treat your symptoms AND look elsewhere for the cause, and treat those areas as well.
