      This popped up on my youtube. It probably is an infomercial of sorts, but it was worth the 10 minutes I spent on it. If you don’t have that time, then skip to the 3:32 mark and take a look at the pictures. This looks just like all of the cobwebby stuff that one sees in a laparoscopic hernia surgery, which was something that I have wondered about. She states in this clip that fascia has 6 to 10 times the nerves of muscle. That’s a little ambiguous, not knowing whether she’s making that judgment by weight or a different unit, but interesting nevertheless, if true.

      It is indeed interesting. Groin fascia is obviously injured in open surgery for groin hernia. The body really didn’t evolve to be friendly to surgery.

      She uses the terms fascia and connective tissue. That is not anatomically correct. The webs she shows are connective tissue but not fascia.

      From a hernia standpoint, we rely a lot on one’s fascia. It so often the strength layer of the muscle repair. Also, you can have fascia tears distinct from hernias. These are most commonly sports related.
