The Lucas Rockwood Show

Think of your muscles like ground beef, and fascia like plastic wrap that creates a scaffolding like structure in, around, and through the muscle. Fascia is one of the most abundant connective tissues in your body, and like all tissues, it’s susceptible to injury, pain, and dysfunction. Despite its prevalence, fascia research remains nascent, so it’s worthwhile for anyone interested in their body to learn more. On this week's show, you´ll meet a fascia expert who will help you better understand this essential connective tissue.

Listen and learn:

  • Why delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is usually caused by pain in your fascia more than muscle pain
  • How fascia is affected by compression, shearing, and stretching
  • The role of hyaluronan (hyaluronic acid) in fascial health
