Valgus Knee and Bunion

Okay.  So this is going to be a month of knees and feet.  Carla came to me with this.  What is wrong with this picture?  Seven years ago she fell directly on the left knee.  One year later same thing, direct trauma to the knee.  Most people who fall on their knee repeatedly, they hurt.  Their knees don’t start to turn in our out and move this way or that.  What is going on here?  What is the set up?  There must be some pre-existing condition that would cause these changes.  Yep.  The set up is both upstream and downstream.  Carla has had toe surgery.  The tissue has scarred up and the foot is no longer flexible.  It can no longer adapt and accomodate the traumatic strain from above.  After an initial exam, she also has a scoliosis.  Lo and behold, two anchor points above and below.  Needless to say, she responded very well to osteopathic manipulative treatments.  The knee made significant improvement after the first visit and we will continue to get it better on subsequent visits.  The scoliosis is getting better.  I can not do too much for the toe because of scar tissue but Carla does report that the  whole toe is no longer numb.  Below, is the after photo.  Great isn’t it?
