(CAVEAT: I have not been a massage therapist for very long. This is literally just me spitballin’—at the same time, this was a really good exercise for me! I like using the assessment part of my brain.)

It’s been tossed around in fandom that Bucky’s muscles have to be pretty f-ed up from having a cybernetic, metal arm grafted onto one side of his body. From the perspective of a massage therapist, that’s 100% accurate—but the issues don’t stop there. At the very least he’s got functional scoliosis and massive compensatory muscle strain, enough adhesions to make Jesus weep, and tons of somato-emotional holding points.

I’m a somatic therapist trainee, and yeahhhh. All of this, this post is so comprehensive and in-depth and RIGHT.

Something to keep in mind if I ever get bitten by a Winter Soldier plot bunny. 

Also, I have feels about how Bucky’s “improvements” replicate some of Steve’s pre-serum traits: scoliosis, trouble breathing, constant pain, etc. 

Also, also, I’m now wondering how much my anxiety and asthma  are connected. 

Ho-ly shite. Wow. WOW. I totally did not put that together, but YES. Let’s talk about THAT. Add in the fact that he likely has digestive issues from being frozen-thawed-frozen-thawed so many times…damn, does someone have a full list of pre-serum Steve’s maladies?

(If you’d like, I’m open to discussing the anxiety-asthma thing. We can go private if you want, whichever.)
