Why is everyone talking about fascia? What is the big deal?
The equine body is a complex machine, and every function depends on the health of its fascia. Fascia is a vital connective tissue that plays a crucial role in keeping our muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and bones in place. It acts like a spiderweb, linking every tissue in the body, from the skin to the muscles, muscles to the bones, and even the organs to one another.
While fascia is essential for the body's proper functioning, it is also vulnerable to damage, which can cause a range of issues. Therefore, it is vital to maintain healthy fascia and repair damaged fascia to prevent injuries and potential problems.
One of the best ways to maintain healthy fascia and repair damaged fascia is by using Equi-Tape®. This innovative tape gently pulls apart any adhesions, which are fibrous tissues that can form between different tissues and organs, thus improving circulation and providing hydration and nutrients to the tissue while removing toxins. It will basically do what a myofascial release massage can do. It also reduces friction, inflammation, and drag, encouraging fibers to align properly, thus reducing the effect of scar tissue.
Equi-Tape® is particularly effective for muscle and fascia line issues, as well as adhesions, and it also proves beneficial after injuries or surgeries, as it can reduce inflammation and dehydration in the fascia. Moreover, you can use it almost anywhere on the body, anytime you need it, making it a versatile and helpful solution to keep your horse’s body healthy and functional.
