For every position the human body can get into there is a unique 'thread' that arcs from the tips of each extremity (toes/feet, fingers/hands and head) to a central connection board of the rectus abdominis muscles. Every thread has a 'connection' to a specific point on these muscles. The rectus abdominis like a central control board for movement.
straighten out all the threads throughout the body from end to end muscle bundles. fibres (illustration???) . A central control board for movement. The main foundation for the body's relative position. The relevant section of the rectus abdominis needs to be engaged for the associated compensatory muscles to relax.
It should be possible to extend each thread to its full potential and each thread should be free to move. This is when we have a full range of movement.
When there is a tension along the arc, a physical restriction or painful area...
Based on my experiences I believe specific symptoms are likely due to the resulting adaptations of the body as it tries to compensate for weakness in differing areas of the rectus abdominis muscles. My dysfunction was total (or very near) and life-long, which is why I think I have made these realisations during my recovery. For other sufferers the effects may be more localised and associated with an acquired dysfunction in specific areas of the muscles after any one (or many) of a wide range of possible traumas.
A challenge for someone: to calculate the number unique positions the body can get into. To one degree difference, to one-tenth of a degree difference...
