Bits of body knowledge for you...
1) Scars can grow roots.
Even little scars can become culprits and create dysfunction in other areas of your body, near or far. The older the scar, the more potential it can have thicker, longer roots.
2) Every structure in your body is embedded in fascia.
It's the human body's packing. Just think of peanuts or anything else you use to put in a box to keep its contents safe and secure.
3) Movement is so important, it helps hydrate your joints.
4) Traumatized tissue can act like a straightjacket.
It can put crushing pressure of 2,000 pounds per square inch in your body.
5) Self-treatment daily is essential to keep you feeling good.
Working on your body daily helps to continue to open fascial restrictions and allow for tissue hydration.
6) Poor posture dehydrates your system.
You have to have open space for the water you drink to get where it needs to go. Just drinking water doesn't hydrate your fascia.
7) Every centimeter your head is forward, of it's balacned position, it puts 3x the amount of pressure on your low back.
8) When tissue is traumatized it needs to remodel itself. This process takes 6-12 months.
9) One of the many effects of myofascial release is creating more space in your body.
10) Every bone in your body is a passive structure to tension you feel.
Think of your bones as tent poles, which cannot hold up the structure without the constant support of guide wires (or your fascia.) To keep an adequate amount of tension to allow the tent (or your body) to remain upright up proper balance you need the guide wires.
