In this video, I’ll share 9 fascinating facts about fascia and the secret to keeping it healthy.

1. Fascia is the material that surrounds every muscle in the body.

2. Fascia gives the body posture and shape.

3. Fascia adapts to the environment.

4. Cells of the fascia or collagen are called fibroblasts. You have billions of these cells that can migrate through the body and lay down ground substance to allow lubrication and movement.

5. Fascia is highly involved with immune function. Myofascial release, massage, and trigger point therapy can help improve inflammatory conditions of the fascia, such as fibromyalgia and plantar fasciitis.

6. Fascia is stiffened by lack of movement. People often assume they have stiff muscles when they really have stiff fascia.

7. Your fascia extends throughout your entire body and is connected from head to toe. This is why you can often relieve pain associated with tight or inflamed fascia by fascial manipulation in other related parts of the body.

8. Fascia is innervated by tiny nerves that allow the body to know where it is in space, so it’s critical for balance and coordination.

9. Fascia can change in material properties and go from being very rigid to very elastic.

Dynamic motions in different directions can help restore fascia, so don’t do the same stretches and exercises repeatedly! High doses of vitamin D3, along with the cofactors vitamin K2, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B6, also support your fascia's health.

    Thank you for this! I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid and Psoriatic Arthritis. They all played havoc with my tendons, ligaments and muscles….as well as my fascia. It used to be excruciating to have anyone work on me (massage, etc). Keto/Carnivore resolved all of the inflammation and I’m finally at a place that I can start actually moving again. My fascia no longer hurts just to touch my skin. I was looking for some videos that would help break up the fascia “stickiness”. Hopefully the pinned videos can give me a place to start.

      Appreciate your sharing your experience, and very glad keto/ carnivore resolve the inflammation. Keep up the good work!

      It’s been the same for me. Yes Keto/Carnivore works, good quality supplements, Tai Chi, increasing sun exposure and other physical activities are helpful as well. Take good care 🙏🏻💜

  • @konekopawa9039 says:

    Great, I always hope to hear Dr. Berg discussing Fascia. Learning about fascia help me understand better about traditional martial arts such as TaiChi. It is a common misconception to think TaiChi is about relaxing. Instead, it is about becoming elastic through posture. Taichi is not about any individual form, but about how you move with certain posture. Hanging the head and sinking the abdomen, curling the toes create vertical stretch; Opening the hips, shoulder, sinking the elbow create horizontal stretch. Maintain the trunk position helps maintain the fascia tension.

    • @trindakajans165 says:

      Could you please tell me who would be good to follow for Tai Chi?

    • @konekopawa9039 says:

      @@trindakajans165 I personally find @Practicalmethod channel helpful. I first heard the connection between taichi and fascia from @HyperarchFasciaTraining. I never directly train from them though, my taichi instructor does not like posting youtube videos. My experience is that good taichi instructors use different metaphors to explain the same thing from different angles. Knowing the connection between taichi and facia provides a scientific framework to understand taichi. When fascia is stretched, the tension gives an inflated elastic feeling, traditionally, it is described as ‘Chi’.

    Dr Berg, please, talk about Fascia again and again, it’s SO important!

  • @barryheyns5111 says:

    Agreed, the only exercise I do in my late 40s is walking 1 mile (2-3 times a day with my dogs) and a set of 30 abdominal rolls with a wheel every night (religiously 😂) with full extension, and I’m in the best shape of my life! I’m defined at 6 feet weighing around 168 lbs…I eat lots of fruit and vegetables and limit my intake of red meat every month. I’ve been watching this channel for years now, and I have to say… LISTEN to this man! He knows what he’s talking about! Thanks Dr. Berg! You teach us so much beneficial information! I even changed careers! I’m in nursing school right now… Halfway done at the end of this week! ❤❤❤
