These kinds of traumatic events restrict the fibers of the fascia, which in turn prevents fluid from getting through the fascial system. These restrictions and points of stress affect the entire body and can also affect areas that are seemingly unrelated or are far in distance from the point of restriction. For this reason, the fascial system is often called a “straight jacket,” because nothing can change it, not stretching, heat, or exercise. Until the myofascial release treatment is given, the pain will come back.
