(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.)
signs, easy to start, surprisingly difficult to finish

So many people were sleeping with each other, it’s kinda hard to keep track. I actually thought of a song that helps me remember. Let’s see, it goes…

Note: I found this today (like right now) and I thought I would share it because I found it awesome. It’s not mine! I’m just glad I could share this piece of fandom with you. Leave likes and comments over on youtube if you have the chance. xo
