A healthy Myofascia is a tissue resampling a spider web and covers all your muscles and bones. It is a very strong yet flexible tissue that runs from the top of the head down to the bottom of toes and can be found almost everywhere in the body. A healthy myofascia is soft and flexible and stretches and moves freely. After an injury such as whiplash, work injuries, poor posture, lack of movement (sitting too long) or inflammation, the Myofascia becomes tight and loses its flexibility at which point it becomes a source of tension and restricts blood circulation to the muscles it is covering. In addition to pain and joint movement restrictions, tight Myofascia can cause difficulty breathing.
