The Fascial Web of Older Patients

Older patients can still heal nicely.

A 70-year-old woman presents with back pain. In 2005 she was thrown from a horse and landed flat on her back. She has had back pain ever since that trauma. Before that accident, she had no back pain. Over the years she has tried every healing modality without success.

On clinical examination she surprisingly had a brain cycle of 50 seconds, but severe fascial strain in her back. During that first treatment session of 30 minutes, the fascia in her trunk released extremely well.

At the next visit of 60 minutes she related that she had experienced significant pain relief in her back after the first treatment. Interestingly during that second session, she felt strain in her left hip due to a car accident occurring before the horse fall. The fascial web remembers its traumas like the layers of an onion. She related that she had continued pain relief improvement from her second visit.

The web apparently knows no age. The current perception in our culture is that the elderly may not be able to heal as well as younger people. From our perspective the ageless connective tissue system still has the capability of healing itself beautifully.

“I know of no part of the body that equals the fascia as a hunting ground. All nerves go to and terminate in that great system, the fascia. By its action we live and by its failure we die. The soul of man, with all the streams of pure living water, seems to dwell in the fascia of his body.”
—Dr. Andrew Still, the Father of Osteopathy

Since the fascial web connects every structural cell, the human body exists as one functioning unit—An Osteopathic Principle
