- Have you ever been to the doctors only to have them send you all over the place for your sciatica pain?
Have you tried every treatment out there from physical therapy, pills, and even surgery but still have continuous pain?
If this sounds like you, then you won't want to miss this new discovery for eliminating not just sciatica, but all of your chronic pain.
There has been a new discovery in the medical field within the last ten years.
That discovery is our Fascia system. What used to be thought of as merely packing peanuts, fascia is now being seen as an important piece to our health and treating our chronic pain.
You may be wondering, how do doctors miss fascia within their diagnoses? Well, that's because fascia doesn't show up on MRIs, X-Rays, or CT Scans, which is mostly why your doctor won't find the source for your pain if its coming from your fascia system.
So what exactly is fascia?
Fascia is a spiderweb-like connective tissue that grows daily within our body. Fascia will cover everything from muscles, bones, organs, even individual cells. This sticky, spider web connective tissue bonds to literally everything within our body and helps us form our posture.
Every morning when we wake up, we move around and stretch, helping loosen up the fascia. But what happens if you don't loosen up the fascia? Then you begin to develop more and more layers of it, which eventually begin to tangle up and develop knots. Another way to look at this is with an injury.
If you have sciatica pain, then you may end up avoid bending over because it causes more pain. But that is also where you are hurting yourself. Without bending over, you begin to develop layers of fascia within the lower back that tangle up with one another. And eventually, will begin to pull on joints, bones, and muscle, creating tension and pain.
Another way to think about fascia is thinking about the white, thin skin on oranges. That really thin layer of white skin covers the main orange the same way fascia covers your muscle.
How do you loosen fascia?
There are a few ways to loosen up fascia. One of them is by getting a myofascial massage. This specialized massage helps strip the fascia's layers, allowing the muscles and bones underneath to move freely.
Another way you can release your fascia on your own is by using a self-massage tool like a foam roller. A foam roller can be just as effective (sometimes even better) than a massage therapist. By using a foam roller correctly, you can not only release trigger points within the muscle, but you can also strip that muscle from its restrictive fascia.

We all have chronic pain that most of our doctors can't figure out. And that's because no one has really studied fascia, the new connective tissue that was discovered about ten years ago. Fascia is a spiderweb-like connective tissue that sticks to everything from bones to muscles. When we don't move and stretch, fascia will begin to build up layers which eventually, becomes tangled up in knots.
When this happens, it will begin to pull on the surrounding tissues like muscle and bone, creating tension, tightness, and chronic pain. The best way to loosen up fascia is with a myofascial massage, or you can use a foam roller.
