Title: Abnormal Walking Mechanics – The abnormal biomechanics of walking that can cause a rapid acceleration of the aging process. Effective diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of 15 arthritic conditions related to abnormal walking biomechanics.

Diet and exercise are the two most important anti-aging tools of the physician and patient to reverse the aging process.
When exercise of walking with abnormal biomechanics causes degenerative joint disease and chronic inflammation, it puts the body in a catabolic state. Instead of walking slowing the aging process it accelerates it. Because the feet are the very foundation from which all other joints align, it is easy to understand why even subtle faulty biomechanics of the lower extremities – principally, I maintain, excessive pronation of the feet – can cause a domino effect of stresses and strains on every joint of the body, literally from toe to head.
This in turn will predispose a patient to an acceleration of the aging process that can include advanced arthritis, and can affect myriad muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.
What this means is that treatment of a great number of musculoskeletal problems is simply not complete unless the practitioner has considered faulty biomechanics of the feet, ankles, and lower leg as the root cause. In many cases where medicine is prescribed to cover pain, the practitioner has not looked at lower-extremity biomechanics.
