Dr. Spina’s lecture outlines for the upcoming sold out IDO PORTAL Movement Camp in Berlin, Germany
Lecture 1 – INTRODUCTION: GOALS
Includes revising the concept of our cellular anatomy & continuum based on current research….Revise the concept of our gross anatomy based on this cellular knowledge… Utilize this information to better understand factors involved in physical adaptations to imposed demands.
Lecture 2 – PHYSIOLOGY:
– An overview of the 4 basic types of animal tissue – Epithelium, Nervous tissue, muscle tissue, Connective Tissue.
– The composition extracellular matrix…and how connective tissue forms the basis of ALL tissue
Lecture 3 – THE MYOFASCIAL CONTINUUM:
– How the continuum of gross tissue permits force production transfers and load bearing transfers
– Biomechanics vs. BioFLOW
– The articular continuum – redefining approaches to joint “stability”
Lecture 4 – THE MYOFASCIAL CHAINS…SIMULTANEOUSLY IMPORTANT & UNIMPORTANT !! :
– Examining the anatomy, postural function, and movement function of each line
– Examining lines in terms of Force couples and Potential to Kinetic energy transfers
– The “No empty spaces” concept…and how it the lines, although useful…produce an over simplified concept
Lecture 5 – CELLULAR CONTINUITY, TENSEGRITY, MOLECULAR BIOPHYSICS, TISSUE MORPHOGENESIS, & PROGRESSIVE ADAPTATION:
– Examining how cell signaling governs basic cellular activities and coordinates cell actions
– How tensional cellular integrity ‘listens’ to mechanical loads
– Concept of Solid-State biochemistry
– How Tissue Morphogenesis leads to progressive adaptations…and why thats important.
