Q&A: Speed and Tissue Rupture

If you've been paying attention you may have noticed a theme. That theme is all rapid responses are neurophysiologic and not mechanical. Tissue eventually deforms and stretches, but very similar to how it hypertrophies; this means with repeated stress and over several weeks. How about speed, can a strike or fast blow rapidly deform or rupture tissue?
