Tensegrity Informed Observations in Human Cadaveric Studies A Clinical Anatomists Perspective

 ABSTRACT 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),…

Site-specific fascia tuning pegs and places of perilous passage myofascial considerations in upper extremity entrapment neuropathies: A Clinical Anatomist’s View

The objective of this study was to identify common anatomical locations of densified fascia associated with axillary, musculocutaneous, median, ulnar and radial nerve entrapment. Additionally, a proposal concerning a tensegrity based expansive decompressive protective role of muscles and ligaments as ‘site-specific fascia tuning pegs’ is offered for consideration. This observational report provides a means to…
