What is fascia and what does it do for my body?
You may be asking -
You rarely think of it, but a lot goes into keeping your body parts in place. After all, no one worries about dislodging the spleen during a sprint workout. That's thanks to a fibrous material known as fascia.
The fascial system works behind the scenes to keep everything in place so you can function at your best. But, for something housed in literally every part of the human body, fascia is seriously misunderstood.
What is fascia?
So what is fascia? Put simply, it's collagen acting as connective tissue. Fascial fibers form a thin casing of protective tissue that surrounds every system in your body. It works to hold your bones, organs, blood vessels, muscles, and more in place to give your body structure and support.
In short, when we talk about increasing collagen, restoring collagen, or laying down new collagen fibers, we're actually talking about fascia.
What happens when fascia becomes unhealthy?
Your nagging knee or back pain may not be a muscle injury but rather a sign of fascial system dysfunction. Unhealthy fascia becomes thick and gluelike, which can compromise physical systems everywhere and really take a toll on your body.
Since it's found everywhere in the human anatomy, unhealthy fascia can have severe consequences for numerous major systems, causing health conditions you may not initially connect to your fascia.
tightens the entire body and limits your range of motion
triggers myofascial pain syndrome (MPS)
disrupts communication signals and limits blood flow
traps toxins in the body
dries out and becomes brittle and thick
cannot take in nutrients, causing cells to die
blocks energy flow and cell voltage
limits muscle elasticity and triggers chronic pain
physically traps trauma in your body
may trigger tightening that leads to migraines
can tear, like a hernia or grade 1-2 muscle tear
can fold or bunch, causing adhesions
All of these side effects have profound consequences for your physical, mental, and emotional wellness. So, how do we avoid developing unhealthy fascia? First, let's address what causes unhealthy fascia to prevent it in the first place.
What causes unhealthy fascia?
Like other cells, fascia is affected by unhealthy habits. Think what would happen to your hair if you never brushed it. In a short amount of time, it would become tangled, sensitive, brittle, and broken. Fascia requires similar "maintenance" to continue functioning correctly.
From chronic dehydration to living a sedentary lifestyle, your daily habits can harm fascia at a microscopic level and impact your health in significant ways.
Some leading causes of unhealthy fascia include:
Body imbalances from poor posture or low muscle tone
Stress, both physical and mental
Drug and alcohol abuse
Eating inflammatory foods and failing to take in key nutrients
Never massaging or stretching the affected muscles and their fascia
Improper healing after invasive surgeries
Autoimmune and inflammatory issues
