Take care of your fascial system
Fascia is a permeating tissue that is heavily loaded with nerve cells. It surrounds and positions every aspect of the body including cells, muscles, bones, nerves, organs and skin. It is the organ of structure.
Healthy fascia is well hydrated and makes it possible for the body to move freely.
Adhesions or knots are caused by fascia that is stuck together.
Scar tissue is a buildup of fascia.
Structural Deviations such as scoliosis, kyphosis (hunchback), lordosis (swayback, anterior tilt), Genu Varum (bow-leggedness), Genu Valgum (knock-knees), splayfoot or duckfoot, and pigeon toes are common Major Imbalances in the fascial system. Though these are usually viewed as genetic issues, they can be improved or corrected through SI therapy.
Minor Imbalances in the fascial system are caused by underuse, overuse or injury, these small imbalances lead to compensation and can eventually create major dysfunction and pain. This feeling of imbalance is normally ignored and often described as tension or stress. Most people do not know that this feeling is something they do not have to live with. SI work reduces this feeling of tension in the body and creates a feeling of lightness and ease.
Over time, the affects of gravity on an imbalanced body can lead to joint deterioration, disc damage, nerve pain and surgery.
Take care of your body before it gets to this critical stage!
