You can see and understand the same when you look at the myofascial network in our body.

“Tension/ kinematic pull can be transferred to any part of the body by the myofascial web. Problems like dysfunctions and pain can be far removed from its origin and is therefore harder to trace. On the other hand can all parts of the body (myofascial system) help to compensate these problems (tension, dysfunctions, pain etc).
Thus, one can say that fascia provides the context for muscle function and motion. Fascia tension that is out of balance is most often responsible for dysfunction and pain. One should never look at muscles without looking at the fascial context and connections within the myofascial system.”
