Back pain is one of the most elusive health issues, and it often leaves pro-athletes without answers or solutions. Unfortunately, according to Ashley Black, back pain is just as prevalent among regular Joes as it is among celebrities and athletes. Tight fascia is one of the primary causes of back pain, such as sciatica, disc problems, and back spasms, yet most of the population has never even heard of it. Thanks to recent headlines about Tiger Woods’ troubles with tight fascia, more people are being introduced to this problem and wondering about the treatments that are available.
Black, the founder of Fasciology, states, “The traditional education system for health and fitness does not stress the anatomy of fascia or how to treat it in-depth.” Black believes that symptoms of back pain, even for athletes at the highest level, can be lessened or eliminated with a fascia treatment regime, including the use of her fascia tool The Lump Buster.
“Fascia is one of the most profound systems in the body. It’s as important as blood, nerves or skin, yet it is the least studied. I haven’t yet had a client who was familiar with the impact fascia has on their health and well-being, and the people I work with have the means and access to get any information they want,” states Black.
She goes on to explain that fascia literally connects humans through and around every structure of the body, from head to toe, hand to hand, and inside and out. This means that the body can be twisted, pulled, compressed and contorted into any position that fascia takes it. Because fascia crosses joints, this means that it can impact the joints, including the important individual segments of the spine.
In an article published by golfchannel.com on March 5th, Tiger Woods reportedly stated that his back “wouldn’t loosen up.” The lines of fascia that run through the spine can come from the bottoms of the feet through the lower back, and up to the head. Fascia also crisscrosses from the shoulders and through the low back to the buttocks. Black explains, “If you’re only addressing an isolated area, such as the low back, you might be missing the root cause of where fascia is actually tight. This is part of the reason back pain lingers, because the root cause might be tight fascia of the hamstrings or upper back. Many people who don’t understand how fascia works suffer chronic pain.”
Early in her career, Black became so frustrated with the lack of knowledge among the masses about fascia that she began to create programs and products for clients to use for self-treatment. She first used her revolutionary fascia tool, The Lump Buster, with her personal clients. The results were so significant that her clients could maintain and improve their fascia health between visits. Head trainer for the Arizona Diamondbacks, Ken Crenshaw, validates Ashley’s results by saying that The Lump Buster was widely popular with MLB players “because it is effective for the treatment of fascia and compliments the pro athlete treatment programs.” Black began mass-producing the Lump Buster, and she is now introducing it to the public for the first time.
