From Tom Myers: I had to check this one out – how could they put living cells though a jet into a printed object? That would have been a very significant development. Upon further investigation (see the second link), it turns out they 3D-printed the matrix for the cartilage cells – which they added later… Read more
Whole-body participation is the key to effective rehabilitation or performance enhancement. The perpetuating factor is often not where the pain is – Learn to see where lack of movement in one area is causing overstrain and pain in another. Anatomy Trains can help you see the overall pattern and assess ‘what’s missing’ in movement.
One of the opportunities that is coming for Structural Integrators and other ‘afascianados’ lies in the area of scar remediation. This opportunity lies both in private practice, where C-section, post-partum or endometriosis scars are all too common. Scarring from bone breaks or tendon ruptures or contusions – all these follow the same set of rules… Read more
From Tom Myers: Amit Alon, the genius of Muscles & Motion in Tel Aviv, has come up with another short video every ‘afascianado’ will enjoy. In this case, illustrating the property of elasticity in the fascial elements Amit’s animations and explanations are very worthwhile, and hit the mark between brevity and clarity Check out his… Read more
Tom Myers’ commentary on this study: New study provides clues to decades-old mystery about cell movement Excerpt from the study: “What we found is that when we cross-linked the fibers (connecting them at intersections) and increased the difference in the stiffness in the two directions, but kept all the other factors the same, the cells… Read more
