Force transmission doesn't just occur within the myofascial unit, but also to neighboring muscle groups that are giving support or antagonistic groups to the motion that's being done. Now think of a spider web. If you were to go and approach the spider web and pull on one end you could see how that entire web responds. The fascia acts a lot in the same way. Any tug, pull, kink, or changing direction transmits information to other parts of the fascia and in conjunction sends information back to the nerves, muscles, and the cells. Bad form over enough time or with enough damage to a specific tissue results in soft tissue injury or dysfunction. This in turn impairs optimal conditions and stresses that the tissue can handle creating compensations or actual physical changes over time in the way a person moves and behaves when they interact with the world.
