Overall, most people will read this and since it really is very general, most people will not learn much from this. Since this is my blog, I will go much further and perhaps, not make too many friends in the orthopedic community. I will address each of these points and give you much better direction on this.
We are all built differently and body style determines how we are to function throughout our lives and also predisposes us to having problems in our knees and hips. This is especially true for those of you who are built asymmetrically (most chiropractic clientèle). Early detection and intervention with foot orthotics, education and even myofascial therapy goes a long way to preserving our body parts. We can start by screening kids at the age of 6 either in the chiropractors office or teach pediatricians a little about the musculoskeletal system so they can give advice that is better than the typical growing pains diagnosis I hear from many patients.If we addressed body style early on, we could eliminate many of the suggestions in the article.
My advice for people with bad knees is not to let that happen to their children. Make them aware that unless they have themselves checked, they too are likely to suffer from this since they come from the same gene pool and are likely not only looking like you but are walking like you too.
