This is a great check list for some typical root causes and symptoms that Fasciologists® see on a regular basis. Scan below and see if any of these apply you. We are here to help!
Fascia is a layer of tissue that presents itself in the first trimester of pregnancy and is literally what holds the body together until the development of skin. After the development of skin, fascia presents as a sub-dermal tissue that runs in a continuous blanket from head-to-toe (human embryo pictured left).
Next, is an example of one structural fascia line that runs the entire length of the body called the posterior fascia line (PFL, pictured right). To help you understand where it is and how it looks, imagine a piece of fried chicken with the skin on it. Just under and attached to the skin is a silky opaque tissue. That is fascia. Healthy fascia tissue is vital to overall health. We treat unhealthy fascia daily at The Fasciology® Institute.
When fascia adheres to itself, it presents as uneven with a lumpy texture just under the skin. Many people think this is cellulite, but it is in fact a symptom of unhealthy fascia that is successfully treated every day at The Fasciology® Institute. The improvement in overall appearance after full fascia treatment is dramatic! (See Layne Coffey’s before and after pics below). It’s truly unbelievable!
Do you suffer from knee pain?
Fascia tissue has a sticky characteristic and can actually adhere itself to the joint. Your knee pain may very well be caused by adhered fascia!
Do you have chronic or recurring back pain?
There is a good chance you suffer from unhealthy spinal fascia. Tight spinal fascia often presents as back pain and can promote bulging and herniated discs. Treatment of unhealthy spinal fascia at The Fasciology® Institute often corrects bulging and herniated discs and relieves overall spinal compression. Check out our “Back Pain” blog for more on this topic. This is one of the most common complaints that we hear in our clinic and we have a super success rate with this treatment.
What about muscle strain? Muscle spasms? Numbness?
Often times, this is caused by jammed joints. Jammed joints become dysfunctional. Jammed joints, which are often times a result of tight fascia, can cause symptoms like sciatica and tendonitis.
Tight fascia can result in compressed nerves, numbness, compartment syndrome and a host of other complaints. It’s not just a quick fix, but regular treatment can actually give you substantial long-term benefits!
