SweaterMyo refers to a muscle. Fascia is a tough, connective tissue that supports, surrounds every muscle, nerve, blood vessel, bone, organ down to the cellular level in your body. Fascia is a continuous, uninterrupted physiological system that runs in your body from your head to your toes.
Imagine it as a three-dimensional spider web or a thread in a "sweater" that connects and influences your entire physical structure.
When the fascia is fully open, flexible and relaxed, your whole structure is aligned, balanced, mobile and able to function at its optimum as it was designed. Trauma, inflammation, surgeries, repetitive overuse and poor posture create restrictions and thicken the fascia. As the fascia looses its extensibility and flexibility it hardens, binds down and pulls the whole "sweater" out of its relaxed and balanced status.
Myofascial restrictions cause your body to be out of optimal alignment, not allowing it to work properly and freely that over time causes lack of mobility, dysfunction and pain. The important part is to understand how your whole body is connected via fascial system and how your pain may be local to the restrictions or in remote areas of the immobile parts.
Conventional medical tests like X-rays, MRIs, CAT scans etc do not show up any myofascial restrictions, and you may have been told that all tests are negative. We know that your pain is real and its roots and causes most likely are related to myofascial restrictions.
