• muscles
  • thinner, ulnar portion of the palmar fascia overlying the hypothenar muscles, forming a roof for the hypothenar compartment of the palm. (drugs.com)
  • In doing so, fasciae provide a supportive and movable wrapping for nerves and blood vessels as they pass through and between muscles. (wikipedia.org)
  • The lumbar fascia binds the deep muscles of the back to the spine and to the transverse processes of the vertebrae. (wikipedia.org)
  • Whenever muscles and joints are moved this also exerts mechanical strain on related fascia. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscular
  • Fasciae were traditionally thought of as passive structures that transmit mechanical tension generated by muscular activities or external forces throughout the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • An important function of muscle fasciae is to reduce friction of muscular force. (wikipedia.org)
  • By monitoring changes in muscular tension, joint position, rate of movement, pressure, and vibration, mechanoreceptors in the deep fascia are capable of initiating relaxation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Deep fascia can relax rapidly in response to sudden muscular overload or rapid movements. (wikipedia.org)
  • This insight happened roughly during the same time in which the field of fascia research attracted major attention by showing that fascial tissues are much more than passive transmitters of muscular tension (years 2007 - 2010). (wikipedia.org)
  • dense
  • In the inguinal region, the transverse fascia is thick and dense in structure and is joined by fibers from the aponeurosis of the transverse abdominal. (wikipedia.org)

  • The finished surface below the fascia and rafters is called the soffit or eave. (wikipedia.org)
  • tendinous
  • The iliococcygeus portion of the levator ani attaches to the lateral walls of the pelvis via the obturator fascia through the tendinous arch of the obturator fascia. (wikipedia.org)
  • fibers
  • Fascia is consequently flexible and able to resist great unidirectional tension forces until the wavy pattern of fibers has been straightened out by the pulling force. (wikipedia.org)
  • periosteum
  • In front of this, as it follows the line of origin of the internal obturator , it gradually separates from the iliac fascia and the continuity between the two is retained only through the periosteum . (wikipedia.org)
  • The Orbital Fascia forms the periosteum of the orbit. (wikipedia.org)
  • The orbital fascia consisting of 3 parts: Considered the periosteum of the bones forming the orbit, and is continuous with dura mater through the superior orbital fissure. (wikipedia.org)
  • stiffness
  • Fascia becomes important clinically when it loses stiffness, becomes too stiff or has decreased shearing ability. (wikipedia.org)
  • In response to a real or imagined threat to the organism, the body responds with a temporary increase in the stiffness of the fascia. (wikipedia.org)
  • continuous
  • Above, it is loosely connected to the back part of the arcuate line , and here it is continuous with the iliac fascia . (wikipedia.org)
  • Below, the obturator fascia is attached to the falciform process of the sacrotuberous ligament and to the pubic arch , where it becomes continuous with the superior fascia of the urogenital diaphragm . (wikipedia.org)
  • between the anterior superior iliac spine and the femoral vessels it is connected to the posterior margin of the inguinal ligament, and is there continuous with the iliac fascia. (wikipedia.org)
  • gluteus
  • Additionally the lumbar fascia is an attachment for the gluteus maximus muscle and the latissimus dorsi muscle. (wikipedia.org)
  • sensory
  • Robert Schleip, "Fascia as a Sensory Organ" in: Erik Dalton, Dynamic Body Exploring Form, Expanding Function. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissues
  • Also called fascia, these tissues take part in a body-wide tensional force transmission network and are responsive to training stimulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • structures
  • There exists some controversy about what structures are considered "fascia", and how fascia should be classified. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although this potentiates the tensile strength of the fascia, it can unfortunately restrict the very structures it aims to protect. (wikipedia.org)
  • made
  • Fascia can be made from metal or timber. (absolutegutters.com.au)
  • The front fascia Kit is unpainted and made from light-weight and rigid ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) TPO for optimized performance, and is made in the U.S.A. This Ford Mustang body kit is designed around original manufacturer CAD data for optimum quality and fit. (roushperformance.com)
  • Typically consisting of a wooden board, uPVC or non-corrosive sheet metal, many of the non-domestic fascias made of stone form an ornately carved or pieced together cornice in which case the term fascia is rarely used. (wikipedia.org)
  • thin
  • These loops are united together by areolar tissue, and form a thin covering over the cord and testis, the cremasteric fascia. (wikipedia.org)
  • surface
  • Fascia (/ˈfeɪʃə/) is an architectural term for a vertical frieze or band under a roof edge, or which forms the outer surface of a cornice, visible to an observer. (wikipedia.org)
  • Board
