The knees can be compared to the foundation of a house.
If we want to keep our house in good condition for a long period of time, it is important to assess its risk factors and their condition (using sound protocols and tools according to guidelines)
Risk factors that can negatively impact the quality of the foundation
Intrinsic factors such as age and quality of the material
External factors such as the inappropriate weight alignment
Negative environmental factors impacting the foundation – mechanical factors that put pressure on the foundation causing misalignment
Renovations completed inappropriately (not up to code) on the areas surrounding the foundation
Changing the weight of the house to accommodate additional rooms
Preventing the degeneration of the foundation and/or managing deterioration at an early stage is more cost-effective than major repairs once the damage is severe. If the problem is left unaddressed, the house would require renovations, rebuilding/restoring the foundation or even demolition.
The quality of the foundation can be assessed visually. However, to ensure a great outcome, an action plan supported by proper diagnostic tools that identify underlying issues and generate sound recommendations and preventive measures is ideal.
Mechanical deficits are associated with the onset and the progression of knee pain, instabilities and pathologies
Eyes and hands cannot effectively identify and assess all of the mechanical deficits
Mechanical deficits, when identified and measured, can be corrected with personalized therapy
