From Palpation to Inhibition

Fill In Your Details

Author: Dennis Bartram

The palpatory skill we need to develop at our fingertips has to be able to cross the interface of tissue and sense omnidirectional pulls beneath the surface.

In palpation we are listening and feeling for change processes imposed on the tissue by a stress factor. The stress factor can be physical force, a virus infection or even emotional.

Stress as a force distorts tissues into deformity changes. A classical definition states that force is any agency or influence which changes a body's state of movement or rest.

So every external force influencing itself on the body can result in a stress of internal adaption as our bodily tissues respond to the stress. The elastic property of tissue can deform as a result of the stress and allow it to reshape after the force has ceased.

This elastic response is our best defence against the stressor. The problem is that some of the stress force can be retained in the tissues. This retained energy is conserved in the tissues for months and even years until it is released. When the stress force is greater than the elastic deformity of the tissue, the response is called plastic and the deformation of tissue is continuous and permanent.

So in therapy, our protocol and aim is to detect elastic changes in tissue to release conserved energy and to balance the pulls in the Tensegrity matrix that holds those abnormal adapted patterns. These pulls exert an imbalanced torque in the geometry of the body structures.

The body tissues have two qualities that we need to consider. The first is called Anisotropic and describes how the response to a stress differs along different axis. So as the stress runs through the body is many angled axes of motion the vectors of force will disperse the energy in many directions and with varying degrees of tissue density response.

The body's tissues are described as homogenous which describes the different composition of tissues, for example, long bones, dense organs, hollow organs, muscle, fascia and liquids.

So now consider a stress factor imposed on the body running omnidirectionally through different tissue densities and along many axes. The end product of this stress is defined as trauma, which refers to a generalisation of bodily lesions resulting from any form of an external assault.  Part 2
