Health Sachet No 292:
Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSIs) such as Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain), Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (pain due to overuse of computer mouse) and even Text Neck (Neck Pain due to looking down at mobile screen) are becoming common.
Conventional wisdom is that they are problems of bones, muscles and nerves. However, increasingly, the culprit seems to a body part that science hardly noticed till a decade ago: Fascia.
Fascia is a connective tissue, which provides support for organs, blood vessels and nerves. It transmits the contraction of muscle fibers to the bones they move.
It forms the container for all the structures under your skin. Its interconnected nature means that by way of the fascia, everything in your body is connected to everything else.
Watch the fascinating video at the end about how adhesions are formed in fascia and how they can be released.
Also check the links at the end of the page on how to handle many repetitive stress injuries. All that without surgical release of nerves!
If you have any nerve-related problem, first check whether you can use any myofascial release technique, before trying any injection or surgery.
