Fascia is a connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones, and organs throughout the body. It plays a crucial role in providing support, stability, and protection to the body’s structures. Fascia is composed of collagen and other proteins and forms a network of fibers that helps transmit mechanical forces and maintain the structural integrity of the body.
Muscle, on the other hand, is a contractile tissue responsible for producing movement and maintaining posture. Muscles are composed of muscle fibers that contract and relax to generate force and movement.
While fascia and muscle are both important components of the musculoskeletal system, they serve different functions in the body. Fascia provides structural support and helps transmit forces, while muscles are responsible for generating movement and force.
