Structure and Healing of Bone as a Response to Continuous and Discontinuous Strain and Stress
The structure of bone tissue is a response to the forces of stress and strain, these control the disposition of the trabeculae in cancellous bone as well as the orientation of the Haversian systems in compact bone. A change of the direction of force causes an alteration of the bone structure.
