Fascia: What Is It?
While you’re reading this article today, many scientists and experts are still studying about fascia. Actually, there’s a lot of debate that is happening right about fascia’s original definition.
But according to the current and latest study, fascia is a continuous layer of tissue that protects your bones, organs, nerves, and muscles to all unwanted elements. Fascia is made from the body’s natural collagen; it supports your body to create forms.
Fascia helps the body parts to move. It attaches, separates, and encloses the muscles and other internal body parts to allow these structures from sliding and move throughout your body. If your fascia is healthy and well-maintained, you’re flexible to twist, bend, and glide the other parts of your body.
But when trauma and inflammation have occurred, it can tighten the fascia, which can, later on, cause you mild to moderate pain, and worst severe and chronic pain. In addition to that, fascia is consists of multiple nerves that are fully sensitive to pain.
Fascia pain is often linked with the following medical conditions, like:
- Lower back pain
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Plantar fasciitis
It has also been proved that fascia plays an essential role in cellulite. It is the orange peel-like, dimpled or wrinkled skin texture that can be usually seen in hips, buttocks, and thighs.
Cellulite is formed when the skin is being pulled down by a fibrous band that attaches your skin to a muscle. Then, the skin will become dimpled and wrinkled as fat cells gather between connective bands.
