How the Fascia Connects the Whole Body

This lecture will illustrate new studies of the gross and histological anatomy of the human fasciae, and explain the biomechanical model for the human fascial system and its pathophysiology. More recently, dissections of unembalmed bodies have provided anatomical verification of numerous hypotheses including the fascial continuity between different body segments via myotendinous expansions and the possible distribution of tensional forces. This lecture will also propose new studies concerning the histological characteristics of superficial and deep fasciae (fibre content, structural conformation, and innervation) and debate the role of deep fascia in proprioception and pain.
