11 A we see a 'normal' thoracic vertebra. 11B, we can see the body distorted as pressure creates a demand for remodeling under Wolff's Law, and hypertrophic spurs forming as the periosteum is pulled away by excess strains from the surrounding connective tissues and muscles (see also Ch. 3 on heel spurs). A non-union fracture can often be reversed by creating a current flow across the break, reproducing the normal piezo-electric flow, through which the collagen orients itself and begins the process of bridging the gap, to be followed by the calcium salts and full healing.
If we left these hefty layers in the full picture, we would see the animal equivalent of a citrus 'rind' beneath the very thin skin. This has helped to contribute to a general attitude of viewing the fascial net as a 'dead' scaffolding around the cells, to be parted 43 5 The bald statement is that, like the neural and vascular webs, the fascial web so permeates the body as to be part of the immediate environment of every cell. Without its support, the brain would be runny custard, the liver would spread through the abdominal cavity, and we would end up as a puddle at our own feet.
Nearby is a capillary; when the blood is pushed into the capillary by systole of the heart, its walls expand and some of the blood is forced - the plasma part, for the red blood cells are too stiff to make it through - into the interstitial space. This fluid carries with it the oxygen, nutrients, and chemical messengers carried by the blood, all intended for these cells. In between lies the stuff that occupies the intercellular realm: the fibers of the connective tissue, the interfibrillar mucousy ground substance, and the interstitial fluid itself, which is very similar (indeed, readily interchangeable) to the blood's plasma and lymph.
