The junction where skeletal muscles attach to bone is an area of high stress. These are common sites of muscle injury, since when the muscle contracts to create movement, tension quickly forms. When muscles, particularly at these stress points, are kept at maximum efficiency, many injuries can be prevented. No sprain, strain, or fracture is simply a local incident. Anatomy tells us that ligaments, tendons, fascia, and muscles are woven together to form one system that acts and reacts together in the body. Regular massage keeps motion effective and reduces the risk of injury.
