is considered to be a major cause of physical complaints including neck and lower back pain.
Mechanical strain related to body posture has been shown to play a significant role in ongoing,
widespread pain and fatigue (patients prefer to lie down while limiting standing and sitting).

Tensegrity Informed Observations in Human Cadaveric Studies – A Clinical Anatomist’s Perspective

19th century anatomy took a systematic, uniform approach as efforts were made to give each anatomical structure a precise description. Concerning red contractile proteins observed within a gastor, descriptive words provided little or no information concerning the anatomy or physiology of such structures. Latin names were provided describing shape (i.e. trapezius), size (i.e. maximus), number (i.e. quadriceps) and anatomical location (i.e. posterior) but did little to inform learners concerning a global view of human form and function.

Fascia Focused Manual Therapy Interventions-Proposed Treatment for Post-COVID Syndrome

The novel virus identified as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus [SARS-CoV-2] has resulted in the Coronavirus disease [COVID-19] worldwide pandemic. Confirmed cases of COVID-19 has surpassed 57 million people globally and numbers are exponentially increasing weekly. Significant numbers of recovering patients are reporting long-term, on-going painful soft tissue and respiratory complications. While the total number of deaths directly associated with COVID-19 has exceeded 1million people worldwide, a more accurate figure is estimated to be significantly higher due to limited testing and issues around accurately attributing cause of death.

Development of a biotensegrity focused therapy for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse: A retrospective case series

Journal of Bodywork & Movement Therapies 24 (2020) 115-125 ABSTRACT Introduction: Pelvic organ prolapse (POP), the bulging of pelvic organs into the vagina, is a common condition thought to be caused by weak pelvic tissue. There is a paucity of evidence supporting current treatment approaches. This case series proposes a new biotensegrity-focused hypothesis that POP…
