A community member recently had a question about the above quote:
Question: I understand the first two sentences but what do you mean by, “Process is based on relationship?”
Bonnie: There are always multiple perceptions to any question. How do we bridge the spaces between the words?
What I am referring to is how weakness and strength are often approached from a static view of how many muscle fibers are contracting.
My question is, what underlies, precedes, and stimulates the muscles to contract? The bones, ligaments, fascia, tendons, blood vessels of the limbs form before the muscles and nerves migrate into the limbs (embryologically). The structural elements create the architecture, the muscles and nerves provide the movement.
If the skeletal elements are out of sync, then the muscles take over the direction of the bones. Strength is then based on a static process of how many muscle fibers are contracting in specific muscles.
When the skeletal elements are cellularly and fluidly communicating, they direct the lines of force of the muscles. Strength is then a dynamic process, based on the innate relationship of all the bones and their related structures.
