Connective Tissue

Dec 13, 2015

What is connective tissue and how does it work?


The study of connective tissue is shedding light on pain and providing new explanations for alternative medicine. Because of our connective tissue network, if we removed all of our bones, organs, blood, nerves, and muscles in our bodies, we would still maintain our same shape.

Connective tissue is what binds your body together like glue. This tiny network of tissue holds your cells in place while relaying messages between them.


Should we ignore fasciae and the connective tissue?


Interest in the field has been growing. One area that has attracted many researchers at the cellular level is the study of mechanotransduction: how the integrin family of adhesion molecules forms a physical and informational link between the extracellular matrix and the interior of cells. Through these cell-matrix connections, cells sense forces and transform these mechanical signals into cellular responses such as the activation or deactivation of signaling molecules, translocation of transcription factors into the nucleus, and ultimately, changes in gene expression. In addition, substantial evidence supports the notion that mechanical signals can be transmitted directly through the cytoskeleton into the interior of the nucleus. (See “Full Speed Ahead,” The Scientist, December 2009.)


Does connective tissue have sensory?


According to a 2008 study at the University of Heidelberg, connective tissues indeed do contain sensory nerve endings that can transmit pain when these tissues are inflamed.


Where does Rollga fit in? – Connecting the dots.

Millions of people suffer from acute and chronic pain, yet they have no signs of degeneration in their muscuskeletal structure, nor do they have any signs of misaligned vertebrae. Unlike traditional foam rollers, Rollga can influence the stretching of the connective tissue to activate the fibroblast process to increase collagen production to repair these connective tissues and repair the network of nerve signals.

Our nerves send signals to the muscles telling them when to fire. The nerves also receive signals from the muscles telling the brain when their is pain or injury. The nerves do all the work, but the muscles take all the glory. Rollga avoids pinching these nerves that run along side our muscles. By doing so, Rollga can sneak in behind the pain and allow the muscle to be stretched without sending the pain signal to the brain. This will aid the tissue to relax and stop contracting.

In addition, Rollga’s patent pending shape influences spinal alignment while you are rolling. Making Rollga Rollers a perfect supplement to your traditional chiropractic visits.
