All connective tissues of the body are termed fascia and are fluid filled or viscous in nature which makes them slippery and able to stretch. Much research is now developing that shows fascia to be an important body system and Dr A T Still MD DO mentioned the importance of treating it in his writings. Damage to these tissues result in fluid loss that causes shrinkage which can affect blood flow and elimination of wastes from around cells. Poor nutrient delivery and toxicity result in inflammation and degenerative conditions such as arthritis. Techniques such as Myofascial release enable blood flow and waste elimination to occur.
