Understanding Fascia

At Sterling Structural Therapy, we use a unique fascia-based therapeutic method, based on new scientific discoveries in fascia research, which are changing our view of human anatomy, and therefore our approach and treatment of orthopedic and chronic pain conditions.

You know the skeletal system; you know the muscular system…meet the fascia system, which connects the skeletal system to the muscular system. This is why we also refer to fascia as connective tissue. It connects everything together, holding together the human body. The fascia is the 3-D spider web of fibrous, gluey proteins that binds those cells all together in their proper placement.

Fewer people are talking about fascia as the key to unlock chronic pain and orthopedic conditions. In fact, fascia has been relatively ignored, in fact, it doesn’t even show up on MRIs, CT scans or x-rays. Therefore, imaging may not show the whole picture. At Sterling Structural Therapy, we see fascia as the roadmap to creating success for our patients in pain.
