Sample text

It is one basic intention of manual and movement interventions - quite aside from the educational value they may have - to open both of these elements to allow free flow of nutrients to, and waste products from, these cells. The condition of the fibers and ground substance is of course partially determined by genetic and nutritional factors, as well as exercise, but local areas can be subject to 'clogging' through either of these two mechanisms when excess strain, trauma, or insufficient movement has allowed such clogging to occur.

If we compare the fibers running from upper right to lower left, we can see that they are denser and stronger than those running from the upper left to the lower right. This means that more strain was habitually present in that one direction, perhaps from being left-handed, or (entirely speculatively) from being a big city bus driver who used his left hand predominantly to drive. This strain caused lines of piezo-electricity, and the fibroblasts responded by laying down new collagen, which oriented along the lines of strain to create more resistance.

You might suggest wood, PVC pipe, or ceramic for the bones, silicon or plastic of some sort for the cartilage, string, rope, and wire of all kinds, hinges, rubber tubing, cotton wool to pack the empty places, cling-wrap and plastic bags to seal things off, oil and grease to lubricate moving surfaces, glass for the lens of the eye, cloth and plastic sacks, filters and sponges of various kinds. And where would we be without Velcro® and duct tape? The list could go on, but the point is made: connective tissue cells make biological correlates of all these materials and more, by playing creatively with cell function and the two elements of the ECM - the tough fiber matrix and the viscous ground substance.
