Before you answer this question lets first explain what is “Fascia” and how it works.
Fasciae are similar to ligaments & tendons. Ligaments connect bone to another bone, tendons connect muscles to bones but fascia is the connective tissue surrounding the muscles or other structures. There are 3 types of fascia;
- Superficial Fascia (it’s all over the body)
- Deep Fascia (this provides a sliding and gliding environment for muscles, transmits movements and supports nerves & bloods vessels as they pass through muscles)
- Visceral Fascia (this suspends the organs in their proper place)
Unhealthy fascia will cause imbalances in your speed, strength and agility. Age, poor posture, trauma, injuries, poor diet & lifestyle can all cause your fasciae to tighten and distort leading to joint, muscle, tendons and/or ligament pain or discomfort.
