Understanding Fascia-Based Therapy

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.

Majority of people experience 25%-75% reduction in symptoms at their consult.


The Fascia System

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.

The Root Cause

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. We assess the imbalances your system, and use this root cause analysis approach to get our clients the results they are looking for.

Fascinating Fascia Facts

  • Fascia has six to 10 times more sensory nerves then muscle.

  • Genetics determine only what proteins (fascia) are able to be manufactured. The local environment of how you use your body determines how they are arrayed from day to day.

  • Fascia protein fibers organize themselves depending on the forces that go through them. This organization is dictated by your posture, habits and athletic endeavors.

  • The fascia net responds and distributes forces as a whole not just locally. This means the restriction in your calf can literally cause your neck pain, or in other words, your low back pain might be coming from a restriction across at the opposite hip.

  • Trauma, injury, inflammatory responses, postural patterns and/or surgical procedures can create fascia restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures.
