    Scars, Adhesions and the Biotensegral Body - science, assessment and treatment explains the effects of scars and adhesions on the body through the lens of biotensegrity, a concept that recognizes the role of physical forces on their formation, structure and treatment. It includes contributions from specialists in the fields of fascial anatomy, biotensegrity, movement, surgery and other manual therapies. Together they combine to explain why an appreciation of three-dimensional connectivity, integrated body architecture, posture and movement essential to more effective scar management.



    The potentially disastrous consequences of scars and adhesions to health and well-being must be familiar to virtually every health-care practitioner, yet the causes and the paths to their resolution can be difficult to manage and remain controversial. Even the most innocent-looking scar can generate internal adhesions that cause tissue stiffness, restrictions and functional issues locally and at some distance from the original insult. Scars, Adhesions and the Biotensegral Body takes a comprehensive approach to a better understanding of these complex issues and will be valuable to every hands-on practitioner.
