Low Back Pain and Biotensegrity

The human body is an amazing organism. Like most organic life, a person’s structure follows the principles of biotensegrity, which is the way compressive and tensional forces operate in relationship to form the basis for structures in organic material (Chaitow, 2013). Understanding the principles of biotensegrity, like cells are mechanically stable because of the way their structure and increase in tension in one area of the structure results in increased tension in other areas, is vital in understanding human movement dysfunction (Ingber, 1998). A great example to look that illustrates this well, is the complexities in understanding lower back pain.
