Without doubt fasciae respectively fascial structures play a substantial role in the process of proprioception (Benjamin 2009, Langevin 2006, Stecco 2007b). Fascial components like membranes and septa or deep and superficial fascia are an intricate and integrated part of the locomotor apparatus (Wood Jones 1944, Standring 2005). To play that functional role in proprioception the fascial structure should be equipped with adequate neuroanatomical substrate (‘proprioreceptors’). For the quality of the centripetal information it is, however, an important feature how the mechanical architecture of the connective tissue structure at stake relates to the skeletal and muscular tissue in a given area (Benjamin 2009; Vander Wal 2009). Only if a given fascial structure has a mechanical architectural relationship with muscular or skeletal elements, it is able provide the mechanoreceptive information needed for proprioception. This means that the aptitude for providing centripetal mechanoreceptive information by a fascial structure depends on its architecture and structural relationship with muscular and skeletal tissue and not simply on its topography (Van der Wal 2009).
