3. Biotensegrity and Myofascial Chains
The musculoskeletal architecture of the human body is a tension dependent system existing within a biotensegrity design. The concept of biotensegrity will explored, and the overall importance will be related to the global systems approach. Myofascial chains have been described, using various descriptors, for decades within the physical therapy profession. The evidence regarding these interconnected muscular chains will be reviewed, as well as a discussion as to how these chains might inform rehabilitative strategies for the hip and pelvis.
