Did you know that Dynamic Misalignment of the Knee Joint is a key factor to consider in the treatment plan?
Which Dynamic Misalignment Category would you choose to best describe Lisa’s knee joint?
Over 500 health professionals were interviewed (surgeons, physical therapists, sports medical doctors) and asked that question.
Their response are as follows:
- 1/3 SAID : Neutrally aligned
- 1/3 SAID : Varus aligned
- 1/3 SAID : Valgus aligned
- 0 SAID : Valgus thrust/flexum/rotation
This demonstrates the Visual Assessment Challenge that you have as Knee Expert!

It’s an extraordinary device for anyone experiencing knee pain,”
