Miserable Malalignment Syndrome
« on: May 26, 2006, 08:01:14 PM »
Hi, does anybody know the best way to treat this problem. Ive got custom orthotics but they've been no help. I don't believe that I need to consider an LR yet but after seeing various physios and oesteopaths, doctors, e.t.c. I was finally made aware of my knock knees and other problems, by a podiatrist. How effective is PT in treating this problem and what else can I do? My legs have always looked like they do so why should I start having problems at 32? Is there hope (sigh!!)

Thanks.

Chris,

No one knows why all of a sudden these things happen, but sounds like several non-surgical treatments have been tried.  If you've been diagnosed with miserable malalignment I'm not sure it can be corrected with physio. 
Here is an article on the subject.....
