New research on Fascia changes the way we look at pain
There is an ongoing global revolution within the anatomical research field, turning the way we view our bodies upside down and setting a new standard for how we conduct research.
Dr Heike Jäger, neuro physiologist and specialist in muscular deseases, chronic pain and back ache at the Fascia Research Center at the University of Ulm, Germany, is one of those leading this development. According to her, the old premises for anatomical research are no longer valid.
The reason being this wildfire of new discoveries that is challening our conventional view of the human body. One such example (Rein et al, 2014) is the discovery of a new type of nerv endings in the tissue, previously unknown to us.
