How to keep your connective tissue elastic

What are fasciae, what are their roles, and how can agglutinated fasciae be treated? We answer the most crucial questions.
What exactly are fasciae?
The connective tissue that covers our muscles, muscle fibers, tendons, and bones is known as fascia (lat. fascia). They are white and slightly transparent, with a thickness of only a few millimeters. Fascia is a network that spans through the entire body. 

What types of fascia are there? 
A distinction is made between three different types of fascia: 

superficial fascia 
deep fascia 
visceral fascia 
Superficial fasciae consist of loose connective tissue and can stretch. They are primarily responsible for water and fat storage and serve as a buffer between organs. 

Our muscles, bones, and joints are all surrounded by deep fascia, which keeps individual muscle fibers from rubbing against each other. The deep fascia tissue can respond to injuries to the fascia and nerves because it has many pain receptors.

The meninges and peritoneum are examples of visceral fascia. They are less flexible than the super because they protect and fix the organs.

What is the function of fascia? 
Fasciae fulfill various tasks in the body. On the one hand, they stabilize and shape different parts of the body, such as organs and muscles. On the other hand, they prevent friction between muscles and are responsible for the mobility of the body. In addition, they can transport fluid and receive stimuli and transmit information through their nerve fibers. 

What are the causes of agglutinated fascia? 
The most common causes of stuck fascia tissue include lack of exercise, overuse, injury, and stress. When fascia is not stressed enough, it loses tension, hardens, and adheres to the surrounding tissue. The hardening of the connective tissue reduces the ability to glide - and that causes pain in the muscle. 

What can I do if my fascia is stuck?
Fascial training can help ease deep-seated stress in the neck, shoulder, and back when fascial tissue is locked together. The fascial distortion model (FDM) and Rolfing are two well-known therapy methods. Certain hand movements are used in these approaches to help loosen fascia and increase the body's production of new collagen fibers.
In addition, because it can be done at home, fascia roller training is becoming increasingly popular. Beginners, on the other hand, should seek out an experienced physiotherapist or osteopath to demonstrate the exercises. Yin Yoga is also beneficial for reducing body tension.

In addition, one should keep in mind that back pain can also have other causes, such as intervertebral disc problems. So before you blindly start fascia training, it is essential to see a doctor and get a thorough check-up.
