    Helping You to Better Feel, Control,
    Understand and Experience Your Body

    Were anatomy looks at muscles and bones and how they connect, biomechanics looks at how those muscles and bones interact in a live body, in your body.

    Learning muscle control and proprioception, you can directly experience the biomechanical forces within your own body, and so gain an even better understanding of how your body works. You can experience your own anatomy.

As pressure is increased (bigger arrow on right) ligament and tendon tension increases so that the joint capsule resists synovial fluid being pressed out from between the bones.
