Posterior Line in the Body

Dec 18, 2023

Happy Embodied Musings


I’m back with my skeleton boyfriend to share about a beautiful relationship in the body, our posterior line (on the back of the body). When I was in the cadaver lab this past June, this line was very obvious, if you tugged on one part of it, it would affect the rest of the chain. 


The relationship I am sharing about today starts in the thoracolumbar fascia, goes into the fascia on top of the sacrum into the sacrotuberous ligament then into the fascia of the hamstrings then into the calf muscles then into the bottom of the feet (the plantar fascia).


Next week I’ll share some easy ways to help hydrate this line which can be particularly helpful if you are dealing with plantar fasciitis or low back pain.
