FasciaNation with Movement

By: Dr Dawn DPT

I know I have talked about fascia previously, but really you can’t talk too much about long overlooked tissues that just happen to be uber important for body maintenance of mobility and strength. And it just so happens that two of the most common complaints as people age are loss of mobility and strength. Fear of falling is a common consequence of these critical system losses. In fact, recent literature shows that just the fear of falling predisposes one to falling.

So how do we combat loss of mobility and strength? Well… start mobilizing your tissues now! Here’s a great little sequence for fascial mobilization from Jill Miller, creator of Yoga Tune Up®.

Fascia Focused Fitness

And practice your “get ups”!

It’s never too early or too late in life to begin a body maintenance/self care program. Mobilize and strengthen those tissues!
