Myofascial Adhesion

Myofascia is the strong, fibrous connective tissue that supports and separates the muscles of the body. Myofascial adhesions can form in the soft tissue of the body, and over time, can build up to limit mobility, decrease strength, and cause pain.

What is Myofascial Adhesion?

Fascia is the most abundant connective tissue inside the body. A thin casing of connective tissue, fascia, wraps around and holds everything inside your body together, including muscles, organs, nerves, blood vessels etc. On top of connecting every part of your body together, the fascia also has its own nerves that can make it as sensitive as skin which is why it plays such a vital role in chronic pain conditions.

Although to the blind eye fascia may look like a single piece of tissue, it is composed of several layers with fluid in between them called hyaluronan. The goal of this fluid is to allow frictionless movement between different structures of the body while you move, aiming to prevent injury.

When inflammation to the muscle tissue occurs, this can damage the surface of fascia; subsequently, scar tissue is formed in order to repair the damaged issue. The scar tissue, also known as adhesions, can sometimes cause abnormal attachments between body tissues, preventing the structures from functioning properly and eventually cause pain.
