Example text

Fascia is very extensive. If all other tissues and organs were removed from the body, with the fascia kept intact, then one would still have a replica of human anatomy. Fascia surrounds every muscle and compartmentalizes muscle masses. It surrounds and compartmentalizes organs in the face, neck, and mediastinum. Fascia forms sheaths around nerves and vessels. It envelops the thoracic and abdominopelvic organs. It forms the pleura, pericardium, and peritoneum. Fascia connects bone to bone, muscle to bone, and forms tendinous bands and pulleys.

As the immediate external environment of every living cell, fascia directly or indirectly influences the metabolism of these cells. Abnormal pressure or tension will alter the diffusion of nutrients and the elimination of wastes, resulting in alterations in cell function. A cell needs proper maintenance of osmotic pressure and tissue tension of the surrounding interstitial fluid and ground substance for proper metabolism. Cellular Composition The most abundant cellular component of fascia is the fibroblast.

There are normal or abnormal lateral physiologic spinal curvatures and multiple compensatory scoliotic patterns. Thus, spinal muscles are in a constant state of hypertonicity, trying to maintain an upright stature against gravity's rotary force. All of these factors affect articular motion and function. Vertebral Motion at the Functional Spinal Unit Coupled motions are normally present in a functional spinal unit. Flexion is the rotary motion of anterior vertebral approximation coupled with ventral translatory slide.
