Interesting statement on adhesions-mat explain tingling for some people.

Posted by Carmen on 5/08/02 at 09:49 (083021)

What are Adhesions?

Our bodies contain special protein structures called Fascia (connective tissue). Fascial tissue inter-connects all the components of your body, and acts as a flexible skeleton. When this tissue is healthy, it is smooth and slippery, allowing the muscles, nerves, blood vessels, or organs to move freely and function properly. Imagine a piece of scotch tape, the smooth side is healthy fascia, the sticky side is scar tissue or unhealthy fascia. Try rubbing both sides of the tape along your skin. The smooth side slips easily across your skin. The sticky side drags across your skin. The drag that you feel, the 'pulling' sensation is how an adhesion affects the smooth functioning of your body. Adhesions attach to muscles, decreasing their ability to work properly. You know you have an adhesion on a nerve if you get many abnormal sensations like numbness, tingling, or pain

That's a good explanation of adhesions. Where does it come from?

I love the scotch tape analogy. I'm always looking for ways of explaining stuff about the body to people/students, and this sort of thing helps a lot. I shall file scotch tape away in my mind for future use.
