Why is everyone talking about fascia? What is the big deal?
Fascia is essential for every function in the body, but it can easily be damaged, causing a host of issues. So, what is Fascia? Great question; fascia is the strong connective tissue that surrounds and encapsulates muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and bones. It transfers energy and information. Fascia is the connective tissue that links every tissue in the body. Fascia connects the skin to the muscle, the muscle to the bone, and the organs to each other.
The process of repairing damaged fascia and maintaining healthy fascia is crucial to prevent injuries and avoid potential issues. A helpful solution could be using Equi-Tape® which gently pulls apart adhesions, increases circulation, and provides hydration and nutrients to the tissue while removing toxins. It also reduces friction and drag, decreases inflammation, and encourages fibers to align properly, reducing the effect of scar tissue.
Wondering when to apply the fascia applications to your horse? It's perfect for muscle and fascia line issues, as well as adhesions. It's also effective after injuries or surgeries, as it can reduce inflammation and dehydration in the fascia. Plus, you can use it almost anywhere on the body, anytime you need it.
