What is Fascia?
Fascia, is the dense tough tissue that surrounds and covers all your muscles and bones. This outer covering, called fascia is very strong and very flexible. In fact is has the tensile strength of over 2000lbs.
When Myofascia is damaged or traumatized it can become too tight and cause a number of problems such as:
Muscle pain and spasms
Chronic back and neck pain
Sensations such as numbness and pins and needles
Poor posture and reduced flexibility
Things that can cause this once flexible tissue (Myofascia) to become too tight are:
Traumas, such as a fall or car accident
Lack of stretching such as prolonged sitting or standing
Repetitive motions, such as factory work or keyboarding
How can we help?
