The authors suggest that increased fascial thickness in the lumbar spine of elderly implies that the fascia dynamically adapts to the forces acting upon it.
The authors postulated that the deep fascia could be subjected to at least two different kinds of alterations: fibrosus and densification.
It is ironic and bittersweet that this article recognizing the importance of the interstitium, reveals its ignorance of any research already published about that very soft tissue.

At the muscular level, myofascial release (MFR) is commonly believed to ease fascial gliding motion, releasing adhesions between fascia.
In histological studies, the lumbodorsal fascia has been found to be densely innervated with nociceptive afferent pain fibers.
Confirmation of endocannabinoid receptors in fascial tissue greatly bolsters our understanding of the mechanism of how manual and movement therapies work.
This study demonstrates that manual therapy initiated immediately postoperatively is an effective preventive approach for postoperative abdominal adhesions.
