Connective Tissue & Fascia

Lesson Overview

In this lesson, we introduce the anatomy of connective tissue.

Objective

Understand the foundational anatomy of connective tissue, and gain an understanding of the significance of the myofascial meridian theory.

Description

Define and give examples of connective tissue. Define ligament, tendon and fascia. Explain fascia using descriptive phrases that help students to get a clearer sense for this pervasive tissue. Explain functions of fascia and describe what it communicates to the brain about. Explain the meaning and significance of the term “myofascia” and how the “myofascial meridian theory” differs from the traditional anatomy model.
