Sample text

In contrast to the neural and vascular net, the fascial net has yet to be depicted on its own by any artist we have seen to date. Vesalius' closest rendering is the familiar ecorche view of the body, which certainly gives us some idea of the grain of the fabric of the fibrous body, but really renders the myofascia - muscle and fascia together, with a heavy emphasis on the muscle. This is a prejudgment that has been continued in many anatomies, including those in wide use today: the fascia 39 28 2 Fig.

If the fibers are too dense, or the ground substance too dehydrated and viscous, then these cells will be less thoroughly fed and watered. It is one basic intention of manual and movement interventions - quite aside from the educational value they may have - to open both of these elements to allow free flow of nutrients to, and waste products from, these cells. The condition of the fibers and ground substance is of course partially determined by genetic and nutritional factors, as well as exercise, but local areas can be subject to 'clogging' through either of these two mechanisms when excess strain, trauma, or insufficient movement has allowed such clogging to occur.

The cells are deliberately left blank and undefined; they could be any cells - liver cells, brain cells, muscle cells. Nearby is a capillary; when the blood is pushed into the capillary by systole of the heart, its walls expand and some of the blood is forced - the plasma part, for the red blood cells are too stiff to make it through - into the interstitial space. This fluid carries with it the oxygen, nutrients, and chemical messengers carried by the blood, all intended for these cells. In between lies the stuff that occupies the intercellular realm: the fibers of the connective tissue, the interfibrillar mucousy ground substance, and the interstitial fluid itself, which is very similar (indeed, readily interchangeable) to the blood's plasma and lymph.
