The pressure and tension caused by an imbalanced exoskeleton blocks the lymphatic system.

Work that burdens the body unevenly can cause the exoskeleton to twist slowly. Imbalances don’t always require a sudden accident or a strain and even the smallest injuries are enough to cause the imbalances. For example, untreated strains and injuries in the connective tissues in the ankles may cause problems in the joints and the positions of the bones. The knees and pelvis then try to compensate by twisting to the opposite direction, just to balance the whole exoskeleton according to the ankle’s injury. Incorrect trajectory of the lower limbs can lead to tension in the pelvis and the spine.

Small traumas causing these imbalances could be the result of sports injuries (e.g. falling of a horse), a trip or fall, or a small strain. These can be focused on the head, neck, hips, back or lower limbs.

To protect the trajectories and normal balance the body tries to adapt to these imbalances. However, a twisted exoskeleton leads to tension in the musculature, pain and mechanical problems in the joints. These joint problems can lead further on to arthritis, deterioration and a damaged nervous system.

Fascias, membranes of the musculature

The imbalances in the exoskeleton can result in changes of the musculature and their membranes. The tension may change the resting length of the muscles and disturb the metabolism, preventing the oxygen and nutrients from flowing freely.

Fascias which surround and connect intestines can function as a sense organ itself and has an impact on trajectory. The muscle membranes mainly consist of water and the perforation veins perforating them create the shallow and deep metabolism. The shallow metabolism collects interstitial fluid from the skin and hypodermis whereas the deep metabolism takes care of the tissues underneath the fascias’ and the general metabolic system in the intestines. The shallow lymphatic vessels run in the subcutaneous fatty tissue and follow the blood vessels. The dysfunctions in the fascias’ mechanical structure also disrupt the flow of the lymph running through them.
