There is a long and mystifying connective tissue which weaves all across our body. It helps us to link and support the bones, organ and bones of our whole body. It comprises of tightly packed protein fibers.
This is known as Fascia and is quite an important part of our body, much more crucial than you think. Many a times, it is even responsible for all those unusual pain, cracks, aches and stiffness which you cannot quite place. On a much more startling note, it is also related to a few strange infections you may encounter at some point of time. Fascia is basically responsible for your general mobility as well as biological design. It works towards supporting ones physical structure as well as each and every single movement made by your body.
Let Us Know a Bit More About Fascia in Detail
Our human body is practically made up of trillions of cells and the fascia is the web or the link which basically connects every one of them together. It is a slippery and smooth membrane which is made up of humid, fibrous and wet proteins ( generally elastin and collagen). It is highly responsible for our movement and ones stability as well as is integral to disability and recovery from injuries.
Even to this day, scientists do not have the complete and whole knowledge of the way in which fascia works on the whole—it stands as a very intricate and complex subject. Yet in the past few years, it has become quite a buss word in the wellness sector. More and more research work is being directed every year to come out with more knowledge about this essential biological fabric of the human body.
Fascia and Its Three Layers
Fascia is regarded as a three-dimensional incessant web of connective tissue which works towards supporting and maintaining the body’s structural integrity. The three of its layers consists of deep fascia, superficial fascia and visceral fascia. When they are all together they eventually form the interior soft tissue structure and plays an essential role in ones overall biological blueprint.
