There is still not any new definition of “fascia” that is accepted by all researchers. Anatomists generically relate this term to sheets, sheaths and other dissectible and visible masses of connective tissue, and thus, a more passive, supporting structure. A more recent view of fascia is as the whole-body, continuous, three-dimensional matrix network which is paramount for the whole-body systems functioning. Not all doctors have this new knowledge about fascia and may feel inconvenient and perhaps avoid talking about it.
