About Fascial Lines (or Nets)
I've gleaned some information from several sources to show how fascia is connected to and how it impacts our bodies overall. These lists are NOT intended to be all inclusive but rather a broad overview of its impact on our body, design, structure and how if affects overall functional mobility. It is a "living" list - in that the list will be ongoing and updated regularly. The videos I created give a general glimpse of where the fascial nets/lines are located within the body. The brief descriptions are designed to give you an idea of the underlying structures impacted and influenced by the related fascia. This is for visualization purposes only.
Superficial Front Line: Associated Fascia, Structures and Movement: Scalp Fascia, Sternocleidomastoid, Sternum Fascia Rectus Abdominis, Rectus Femoris and Quads, Tibialis Ant and fascial compartment, Achilles Tendon, Toe extensors, Balances out the Superficial Back Line/Net, Gives tensile support for pubic region, ribs and face, postural knee extension
Superficial Back Line: Associated Structures and Movement: Posterior scalp fascia, deep spinal intrinsic muscles, Erector spine, Sacrolumbar fascia, deep lateral hip rotators, Sacrotuberous ligament, Hamstrings, gastrocnemius and soleus, Achilles tendon, plantar fascia and short toe flexors, supports posterior body surface from foot to head creates body extension
Deep Front Line: Associated Structures and Movement: Scalenes, Deep neck mustles, Lungs, Chest muscles, Heart, diaphragm, Anterior spine, Pelvic floor, Psoas, Iliacus and pectinous, Hip Adductors, Poplitius, Tibalias Posterior, Long toe flexors
Functional/Front Power Line: Associated Structures and Movement: Pectoralis Major, Rectus Abdmons, Add. Longus; contralateral and Extension of Arm Lines/Nets across body for power and precision
Spiral/Deep Power Line: Associated Structures and Movement: Splenius wapitis and splenius cerivics, Rhomboids, Serratus Anterior, Abdmonial Obliques and fascia, Erector Spinae, Sacrolumbar fascia, sacroturerous ligament, TFL & Iliotibial tract, Bicep Femoris, Peroneals, Tib Ant; wraps body in double helix thus creating, compensating and contributes for twists, rotations and lateral movements.
