Fascia – The Latest Fad?


It seems all of a sudden everyone has discovered fascia. I heard yesterday there is a fascia exercise book coming out. Once again are we heading the down the reductionist road here. We can’t ignore fascia, but just like bone, muscle, tendon and ligaments they are all part of a beautiful self-organizing adaptive system- the body. Lets not trivialize the role fascia plays, but let’s put it in context. Anatomy Trains is a nice concept, a unique way to conceptualize the body, but not the way or the answer.
