Fascia is the layer of tissue that surrounds and helps support muscles, vessels, bones and organs of your body.
It helps to reduce friction, provide a sliding and gliding environment for muscles, helps suspend organs in their proper place, transmit movement from muscles to the bones they are attached to and it provides a supportive and movable wrapping for nerves and blood vessels as they pass through and between muscles. It can become restricted due to overuse, trauma, infection, psychogenic disease or inactivity.
