Why is fascia so important?

 Fascia is a connective tissue that literally covers a majority of the structures in the body.  It covers muscles, groups of muscles, organs, groups of organs, nerves, blood vessels, etc. Fascia is the tissue that deals with trauma.  Energy is not created nor destroyed; it changes from one form to another.  If you have a fall, some of the kinetic energy isn't totally transmitted through the body.  Some of that energy is absorbed and stuck in the body.  The more elasticity in the tissue the more energy is can store.  That stored energy can accumulate from one physical trauma after another until it hits a point where the tissue cannot absorb anymore and continue to function.  This is how some innocuous or even obvious traumas can occur over time and you don’t think that it has to do with the chronic pain you’re currently experiencing. Some sources of traumas are falls, injuries, car accidents, surgery, pregnancy/delivery, illness, contact sports, etc. Some of the dysfunctions can present as pain locally but also somewhere further out, limited mobility, digestive issues, irregular bowel movements, to name a few.

Life in Ottawa has so much to offer

Are you living the pain free active lifestyle you want?

Fascia is the connective tissue that is everywhere in the body.  Fascial restrictions can limit how your body moves, how your organs function, and how you feel in your own body.  Restrictions can be caused by many things, we focus on releasing restrictions caused from physical trauma like an injury, a fall, car accident, surgery, etc. Most of these restrictions are an accumulation of compensation over time.
