The Fascia of the Limbs and Back - Part 1

Fascia have long interested clinicians in a multitude of different clinical and paramedical disciplines and with good reason. This article, which provides an anatomical perspective that extends from the gross to the molecular level, deals with fascia in the limbs and back, with particular focus on deep fascia.

Among the many functions of fascia considered in detail are its ectoskeletal role (as a soft tissue skeleton for muscle attachments), its importance for creating osteofascial compartments for muscles, encouraging venous return in the lower limb, dissipating stress concentration at enthesis and acting as a protective sheet for underlying structures.
