STORY AT-A-GLANCE

֍ Your fascia, the fibrous connective tissue found throughout your body, accounts for about 20 percent of your body mass

֍ Your fascia stores and moves water, and carries voltage, acting like an electrical wiring system

֍ Fascia may play a significant role in pain, especially back pain. The reason for this is because the fascia is one interconnected system, and when it loses its suppleness, pain can transfer from one region to another

֍ Fascia is made up of fibroblasts — cells that produce collagen and other fibers — held together by a surrounding matrix. Physical inactivity causes the fascia to tighten and become less supple

֍ The fascia’s ability to slide plays a major role in back pain. Fascia in people without back pain can slide about 75 percent of its length; in people with back pain, this movement is reduced to about 50 percent
