Fascia—Current knowledge and future directions in physiatry: Narrative review
Evan H. Kwong, BSc(Pharm), MD, MSc; Thomas W. Findley, MD, PhD
To address the following questions:
Searched MEDLINE and CINAHL, reviewing abstracts and introductions of articles for relevance to narrative review
Obtained additional articles from the citations of selected articles
Summarized and used information from all articles for each section contained in this narrative review
Certain book chapters were also included for a general overview
This narrative review summarized several aspects of structure and function of fascia from the gross anatomical level to the cellular level
Once the structure and functions of fascia in the musculoskeletal system are further elucidated, the pathophysiology and consequences of many disorders may be better explained
Many neuromuscular and musculoskeletal disorders can be additionally served by research with fascial perspective, to optimize treatment strategies
