Is everything really connected?
Many of us remember the song "The Neck Bone is Connected to the Head Bone", so I want to take that deeper. There are actually seven bones in the neck and even more in the skull. How they attach is important because in many cases it can be a source of our pains.

Without me, you'd fall apart. Even though I am the largest organ in your body, scientists only recently even noticed me. I memorize all the injuries that have ever happened to you dating back to your birth. Of the 37.2 trillion cells in your body, I notice, watch and influence them all. What am I? If you said, the nervous system, I'd give you huge points, but the answer is: FASCIA.
Take a look at the picture below. That crystalized spider web holds you together. When you get injured or just do the same repetitive motion, it alters your fascia and creates abnormal movement patters. So while you're at the office getting your nervous system checked, make sure to get your myofascial system check as well.
