Our Tension-Based Body Structure

Old gross anatomy and classical mechanics can’t explain the dynamics of biological structures. The new anatomy of movement “biotensegrity” is a tension-based structure that explains the role of fascia and captures the diversity and strength of the body’s movement.

Simply put: our body structure is designed of “sticks” (bones that do not touch) and strings (fascia that connect to everything). Bones don’t move, fascia moves bones. There is a pre-stress to the entire system which locks in the forces and distributes them through the whole body.

How do we shift over to the new biotensegrity model?
