I am not going to say much about the article linked above, it is thick to read, full of information......I invite you to read it.......however, I found it searching for documentation and research comparing the speeds of nerve impulses versus communication along the body's fascia.
I have seen estimates of speeds 20x faster by fascia than by nerve.....amazing! But that is not what grabbed me in this article.
Instead, what caught my eye in the link above was the role of pH levels in myofibroblasts' contractile activity and development..... and I began to think about some of my own clinic experiences.
Some people are more sensitive to pressure, their muscles are more "jumpy", they have more unexplained pain (from the client reporting and my observation/palpation of the muscles which do not show cause for the pain - but they really do have pain)......and now I am wondering .....are they the ones who have told me their diet is very acidic? Diet Coke everyday, a lot of fast foods and sugar?
And I remember more than several, who reported that although they did not know why or how - but ever since "the traumatic event" (auto accident, fall, surgery, etc) it seems like their whole body has just gone crazy with pain. And yet the injury from "the traumatic event" has long been healed. Again, they described it and I observed it as "unexplained" pain, with no observable/palpable cause.
I need to review my notes and see........ Hmmmm.
It is something to think about and to question.
