It forms and supports. It gives shape to the body and its component parts and holds them in place. Myo meaning muscle. “myo- fascial” release get it! Although, the healing and restorative funtions of fascia can also lead to problems. Fascia can form adhesions between structures that should remain free. (Between shins, forearms, spin etc.).
