Conclusions de Donald E. Ingber

As a fundamental architectural building block of bio-
logical organisms, biotensegrity can be demonstrated at
all size scales within the human body. From molecules
and cells to tissues and organs, each level can be viewed
as a biotensegrity structure intimately connected in a
hierarchical organization with the level above and below.
This realization provides the clinician with an explana-
tion as to how forces applied through the skin during
osteopathic manipulative treatment could have effects at
the cellular level—and possibly even lead to changes in
gene expression.
