What is Fascia?
Fascia, simply stated, is a thin sheet of fibrous tissue enclosing muscles and organs. There are 3 different types of Fascia and damage to any of these can cause long lasting injuries, pain, discomfort, more permanent damage, and will hinder your bodies range of motion. The human body is designed to move and develops in response to the overloads placed upon it. However, decreasing levels of physical activity coupled with muscular imbalances alters normal physiological functions within the neuromuscular systems. Basically, what this means is, damaged fascia causes pain. Pain causes our brains to retrain itself on how to use those specific muscles and joints, which can cause permanent damage and thus, more pain. When we damage the fascia around a joint, we begin to use that region differently in order to avoid pain. Our goal, is to use all of our available resources, knowledge, and techniques to ensure you get the right treatment for the job. Our treatments will begin to work with your Fascia, strengthen the muscles, and retrain your brain to use the damaged areas properly again. This is very important for us all.

Body response to imbalances:
- Alters muscle physiological and neural properties
- Compromised mobility and stability relationships
- Body subscribes to law of facilitation
- Achieves desired movement following the path of least resistance
- Dysfunctional movement
- Develops faulty neural pathways and strategies
- Inevitable breakdowns usually at the weakest link.
Muscle imbalances attributed to:
- Repetitive motion
- Awkward positioning/postures
- Work environment
- Side dominance
- Poor exercise technique
- Imbalance resistance training programs
- Congenital conditions(scoliosis)
- Pathological (rheumatoid arthritis)
- Structural deviations (tibial torsion, femoral anterversion)
- Trauma (surgery, injury, amputations)
