Have you ever heard of Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983), an architectural thinker who was the first in the world to advocate the concept of "building with the least amount of materials"?
Fuller, who possessed a magnificent philosophy that could be called the architectural version of SDGs, has recently been in the limelight as one of the scholars who were ahead of the times. Before entering the medical world, I majored in architecture at university, and I knew only the name of Fuller, but I never thought that medicine would be linked to the structural theory he left behind.
The skeletal model of the human body holds the standing position with a fine balance of compression and tension (gravity and drag), and this equilibrium of contraction and resistance is
However, in the human skeleton, compressors are quite close to each other, so it is not clear whether it can be called the exact tensegrity as defined by Fuller. Therefore, it may be better to call it "tensegrity approximation model" more precisely.
Incidentally, in brain science, some scholars have pointed out that the human cerebral cortex is a scalable tensegrity structure, and furthermore, the cytoskeleton is actually a tensegrity structure.
Bone development, which plays a role in this tensegrity, has been shown to depend on the intensity of external stimuli, including gravity (Wolff's law).
Studies of bones and soft tissues have reported that the electrical conductivity of tissues changes when they are subjected to large external forces, such as falls or accidents. Bone, for example, loses its properties as a good conductor when it is bent or subjected to pressure, and is transformed into a resistor.
in this wayThe structure in which electrical conductivity changes when subjected to a disturbance is called a piezoelectric structure., ,Since the application of electric current and magnetic field therapy for broken bones in the 1840s, physical therapy for musculoskeletal conditions has evolved and developed in various ways up to the present. Such electrotherapy equipment is often used in orthopedic and osteopathic clinics.
In this context, recent experiments on piezoelectric structures have shown thatHuman Touching of Fracture-Affected Areas Alters Electrical ConductivityThis has been reported in Canada.
this associationWe have confirmed that special touching for any acute trauma, including fractures, can result in a very fast recovery.. This includes the effect of restoring inter-tissue resonance in the skeletal model (tensegrity) described above. See the touch in action (video below).
In addition, BReIN has a technology called Earthing Touch.Treatment to remove excessive epidermal charging (excess static electricity), which is said to be detrimental to tissue recovery.The efficacy of the product has been reported.→Erthing Touch Explanation Page

In the current situation where image labeling and diagnosis of the cause of pain diverge, the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) has revised the definition of pain and is shifting to the "emotional origin theory of pain."
