The role of connective tissue in the embryology of the musculoskeletal system...
This paper presents a review of literature regarding the role of embryological connective tissue in the formation of muscles and the organization of the musculoskeletal system. The intention is to introduce a potential paradigm shift with regards to understanding peripheral coordination of movement and movement patterns. This new perspective could improve comprehension of the normal physiological function of connective tissue and, whenever it is pathological, resultant symptoms. Furthermore, this paper briefly discusses some implications of this paradigm shift in the interpretation of movement patterns, posing further questions for future research.
