Fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider’s web or a sweater and is aÂ continuous structure that exists from head to toe without interruption. Â Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressuresÂ on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many tests (x-rays, MRI’s). Â A high percentage of people suffering with pain and/or lack of motion may be having fascial problems, but are not diagnosed.
This workshop will help you discover where your fascial restrictions are and how to use rollers and balls to ease those tension spots on your own.
