PFPS & Torsions

Thanks Kev for the link to Mike Reinhold's blog. Good synopsis on the foot/hip issue with regards to patellofemoral pain.

But I have to admit there is one thing I have quite not figured out yet- what to do about femoral/tibial torsions. What can you do when the bone itself is torqued? Shirley Sahrmann suggests teaching them to ambulate with a toed out/toed in gait to sync the two bones dynamically, then stop running.

But my soft tissue background tells me I can influence structure through soft tissue. I'm not giving up on this one.
