Effects of bones on fascia
As the rigid support or flagpole of the entire fascial network, the effect of bone on the fascia is reflected in the mechanical aspect, and then the physiological activity of the fascia is adjusted through the change of stress.
The mechanical effect of the spine on the fascia. The spine is the most primitive bone of spines. It has been fully developed in fish, and the limbs have fully developed from amphibians. The spine is the center and axis of the human bone. The movement of the spine is a linkage. The center of the movement is located at the posterior edge of the disc. With this center as the fulcrum, the greater the distance from it, the greater the movement of the vertebrae. Three long protrusions, the spinous processes of the vertebrae protruding backwards through the ligaments of the spine to achieve the tension line of the mechanical transmission of the upper and lower vertebrae linkage, the deep fascia on the sides and the muscle surface of the trunk surrounds the trunk to the sides, deep Then it penetrates into the muscles through the transverse processes on both sides, and surrounds the muscles at different depths to extend to both sides. Finally, the deep and shallow fascias are interwoven and fused at the midline of the abdomen.
Through this structural layout, the collective transmits stress through the fascia to other parts of the trunk during exercise. In front of the forehead of the spine, the fascia strengthens in some places to form ligaments or mesangium that hang internal organs (such as the bottom of the heart, the mesangium and ligaments that connect the abdominal organs around the large blood vessels, the pelvic lumbar spine, and the anterior patella to connect the pelvic organ Mesangium and ligaments).
Accompanied by these fascial structures that connect the spine to the body (back and sides) and internal organs (front), or sneak in important structures such as nerves, blood vessels, and lymph. Therefore, the influence of the spine on the internal organs and body through the fascia is not only a mechanical effect. At the same time, the injury or degeneration of the fascia around the spine does not simply affect the mechanical changes of movement, but also affects the function of the internal organs, such as Diseases of the cervical spine will affect the state of the neck, throat, and trachea; spinal diseases of the lower cervical and upper thoracic segments will affect the health of the heart and lungs; diseases of the lower thoracic and lumbar spine will affect the functional status of the abdominal organs; lumbosacral Vertebral lesions will affect the functional status of the lower digestive tract, reproductive and urinary organs. We can visually observe the connection between the spine and the body and organs through the fascia through the following horizontal sections.
Mechanism of spine on fascia
The first is the mechanical mechanism. The spine transmits stress to the body and internal organs through the fascia connected to it. Under the effect of stress, the spinal effect affects the cell activity in the fascia.
