The approach of restoring the body, both skeletally and muscularly, to a balance state/position. Only then can one maximize the efficiency of the body’s natural design, while consequently minimizing the negative effects of gravity.
A two stage approach involving the following:
The idea of postural balance is educated to the patient first as a practical approach to reducing mechanical stress through their joints while simultaneously maximizing the efficiency of their muscles. Initially, educational charts and models are incorporated for this purpose. Patient’s are then brought through a methodical process of building a more symmetrical orientation through their load bearing joints beginning in standing to accomplish this goal. Visual biofeedback tools (full length mirror, vertical/horizontal grid) are incorporated during this learning stage to instill in the patient a greater sense of position sense regarding the positioning of their bodies in space. Once the patient develops the appropriate proprioceptive sense/visual cues learned from this exercise they can then strive to construct and maintain this postural alignment in other positions such as sitting, walking, etc.
Once balance alignment is restored, the patient is transitioned to specific strengthen/stretching exercises to help maintain and sustain the improved alignment built in stage one.

I’m back to my conditioning classes, doing squats, lunges, jumping rope and even a little bit of jogging. My knee feels, looks and works better every day. I’m definitely looking forward to the winter and getting back on my snowboard as soon as I can.

“We did the right knee in March 2007. I was off my feet for about an hour after each of the treatments, but that was it. No long recovery time, no time off from work – it was great. The cartilage began to grow back, and the knee was feeling much better, so we did the left knee in October. Since about two weeks later, I haven’t had any pain at all in either knee for the first time in 10 years. It’s fantastic.”
