What are fascia and how do I loosen it?

Fascia is connective tissue - you could also say skin - which covers bones, muscles, tendons and organs. More precisely, it is a network of collagen-containing fibers that connects related areas of the musculoskeletal system. Accordingly, fascia has a supporting and protective function at the same time. They also play an important role in the transmission of sensitive nerve stimuli.

Since it's not just muscles, ligaments and tendons that keep the musculoskeletal system running, fascia also fulfills important tasks in power transmission. Both a lack of exercise and overload can lead to the fascia becoming restricted in its ability to slide - causing it to “stick together”. This has a noticeable impact on our mobility and well-being.

If fascia are stuck together/hardened, problems arise: On the one hand, the ability to move is noticeably restricted because the affected muscle fibers lose tensile strength and flexibility. On the other hand, nerves that run through the respective tissue area can be squeezed. This leads to pain.

Treat pain from fascia yourself

The solution is of course to soften the fascia tissue again in order to regain freedom of movement and get rid of the pain. The usual tool for this is fascia rollers, which come in different shapes depending on the area of ​​application. The lymphs are stimulated by slow rolling movements, which removes waste and fresh nutrients flow in. The adhesions loosen and the symptoms disappear after repeated use at the latest. You can move better again.

Release fascia with the trigger button (advantages)

The use of foam rollers has become the standard solution for good reason. However, there is one disadvantage: it is a treatment method that only works temporarily. So only for the duration that you use the foam roller.

Our TRIGGin trigger button is a sensible alternative because it is placed on the tension using kinesiological tape and is therefore effective not only for the duration of the treatment, but also during everyday movement. Since it can remain attached for up to 24 hours, it is possible to continue doing your daily work or sport while the tense fascia is permanently stimulated. This is an optimal way to regain better freedom of movement in the short term.
