The fascial system within the human body is made up of a three dimensional matrix of continuous connective tissue which surrounds every artery, vein, nerve, organ, muscle and bone in the body. It is a web of tough connective tissue surrounding, stabilizing and holding the body together. It is a continuous, spider web like matrix from head to toe.
Trauma, physical injuries, and Inflammation for the most part may often cause this tissue to contract, to bind together resulting in extensive pressures on arteries, veins, nerves, internal organs and bone structures. This pressure, over time can create pain which cannot be identified in standard testing procedures such as x-rays, cat scans, myelograms, MRIs et al.
