CONTEXT Although mathematical models have been developed for the bony movement occurring during chiropractic manipulation, such models are not available for soft tissue motion. [] Key Method Using the three-dimensional mathematical model, the authors determined the changing amounts of compression and shear produced in fascial tissue during 20 seconds of manual therapy.

Mathematical Analysis of Applied Loads on Skeletal Muscles During Manual Therapy

The results of the present study may be used by osteopathic physicians to adjust their manual techniques to match viscoelastic properties of specific tissues.

Deformations Experienced in the Human Skin, Adipose Tissue, and Fascia in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine

The large deformation theory of elasticity was used to evaluate the forces that need to be applied such that a specified deformation is produced in any region of the skin, adipose tissue, or fascia layers and found the forces applied through this layer and the adipose layer entirely to the fascia experienced the same magnitude of force.

Mathematically modeling the mechanical constants of thoracolumbar fascia under compression, in vivo

The posterior layer of the TLF (pTLF) is studied under compression using ultrasound imaging in order to determine its mechanical properties and estimates of the modulus of elasticity of skin, superficial fascia, pTLF and the erector spinae muscle group are within an acceptable physiological range.

A STUDY OF THE ELASTIC PROPERTIES OF PLANTAR FASCIA.

In the study of the fundamentals of human locomotion and problems of ot-thotic design, it became apparent that more knowledge of the mechanism of support for the architecture of the foot was required, and the mechanical properties of the ligaments, especially their behavior under loading were investigated.

Subcutaneous Tissue Mechanical Behavior is Linear and Viscoelastic Under Uniaxial Tension

The results underscore the differences in mechanical behaviors between loose and high-load bearing connective tissues and suggest that loose connective tissue may function to transmit mechanical signals to and from the abundant fibroblasts, immune, vascular, and neural cells present within these tissues.
