Knee Problems

Category: Defense system

Back to conditions

Unless you have had direct trauma to the knee, usually the disorganization of the neurology to the cranium and pelvis causes the knees to overwork and fatigue. This leads to instability, buckling, and eventually calcification which only shows up years later.

Question 1:

"When I stand in front of a mirror, I can see that my head, shoulders and pelvis look uneven or tilted. Can this be corrected? "

Answer 1:

Yes it can. If you look at the human body, particularly the cranium/head, the shoulders, and the hip area, you will see that there are actually three pelvises, not one. The jaw bones that come together would be similar to your two collar bones coming together, and your pubic bones coming together. There are two round flat bones in the side of your head beneath the skin of your ears that move opposite to each other when you breathe. They are called the temporal bones. They would be analogous to your flat round shoulder blades or scapulae which move in a counter rotating manner, and your two flat round ileum bones which move counter to each other. You have a triangular bone at the back of your head called the occiput bone. It moves back and forth when you breathe, as does your triangular sternum in the front of your chest, and the triangular sacrum at the base of your spine. There are 4 circuits or sensors (2 on the front and 2 on the back) found in each of the three “pelvises”. If they are all calibrated to each other, they send information to the brain as to their location in space. The brain then calculates and decides which nerves it is going to send energy through, to stimulate the muscles of the head, neck, shoulders, and pelvis. This is done for one purpose only, which is to keep the animal as centered (plumb line) and upright against gravity as possible. If the person has ever struck their head or shoulders, fallen on their head or pelvis, or been struck/checked really hard from the side as in sports/car accidents, the calibration of any or all of the 12 points can become disorganized. The body will do its best to maintain plumb line/center of gravity between the jaw (the cranial pelvis) and the pubic bone (the body pelvis). It will intelligently do this by stimulating one side of the musculature more than the other side, causing the spine to pull or curve out of true center. Remember, it is doing this to maintain the head centered over the pelvis, at all expense. Without this compensatory mechanism you would be in severe pain, immobile, or even dead within a short time. This is why the muscles of one side of the neck, shoulder, or pelvis will pull more than the other, giving the appearance of one side tilting or being higher. This will change the length of one’s stride or “gait” when walking, and can be a main reason for why people wear out their shoes or heels more on one side than the other. It can be the reason why a person can be very strong with one arm or leg, but not with the other. A “gait fault” as we call it, is extremely common in most people, and fairly easy to correct in one treatment. It is as if the body program or motion picture in the brain is frozen in one frame where one arm and the opposite leg are extended forward (as in walking or your gait). Even though you may look like your standing straight with your legs together in centre, your neurology is really firing only one arm muscle group and the opposite leg group. If you watch people when they stand, many will have to lean over onto one hp when they stand or sit. They cannot stand on both feet very long without shifting their weight. This is a sign of a gait fault. It is largely responsible for why people can have a good back swing/kick in baseball, golf or other sports, but a poor fore swing. Of course if the gait fault is the reverse, they will have a good fore swing but a less than excellent back swing. It can be the cause of repetitive sprains, strains, muscle tightness, and spinal curvatures. Many people who present with a minor curvature in their spine are being misdiagnosed with having a “scoliosis”. In medical literature, about 85% of these are labeled as “idiopathic scoliosis”. Idiopathic literally translates into “origin unknown”! I find it very disturbing that information founded by chiropractors and chiropractic kinesiologists regarding the treatment of the body is being purposely ignored by the mainstream health “authorities”. Yet this same mainstream group can justify breaking segments of the spine, inserting rods into children to straighten the “appearance” of the spine (but really not addressing the “cause”, (as I have just explained) for a condition which is 85% idiopathic. They shouldn’t tamper with it if they don’t know or are refusing to listen to other approaches outside of their box of thinking. Please understand that there are cases of severe spinal malformations from genetic defects, etc, but more needs to be learned by parents and doctors alike before going to the most extreme treatment first.

Question 2:

"My tailor noticed that she always has to hem one of my pants a little shorter than the other, and suggested I see a chiropractor. My hairdresser noticed that my head was always tilted and had to cut my hair at an angle. The chiropractor informed me that this is because my spine was out of line or stuck, producing a pull more on one side of my body that the other. This was giving the appearance of one leg being shorter than the other when I lay on his treatment table. However, I have not broken any bones to cause one leg to be shorter. Initially, after a few treatments, my legs became even and I had all my pants re-tailored. Now I notice that the adjustments that the chiropractor performs don’t stay and my head and pelvis are tilting. Can you help me to understand why the adjustments won’t hold?"

Answer 2:

This is a great question since many people experience this problem and many are unaware that it is happening in their body. After reviewing my videos on The theory of N.O.T, The Defense System, and The Cranial Injury, you will understand that the cranium is the prime cause of the problem (i.e.; and old head trauma, probably when you were very young). Your body is pulling the neck, spine, and hips more on one side than on the other in compensation for the disorganization between your head and pelvis. It is purposely doing this to be able to stay upright in a center of gravity.This gives the appearance of a head tilt, pelvis tilt, and short leg. That is why the adjustments help for a limited period of time. The spine is following the signals from the cranial gyroscope program which was disorganized ever since the head trauma. If one were to calibrate the cranial program first, the spine would recenter and gladly allow for the adjustments. They would hold permanently after only half a dozen appointments with the chiropractor.

Question 3:

"My ankle always twists even though I have had chiropractic adjustments, use orthotics in my shoes, and built up the muscles of my legs and ankles at the gym. Is there something neurological that could be going on?"

Answer 3:

Definitely. What you have tried to do so far is great; however, there is probably neural disorganization of your gait mechanism and balance centers and how communicate neurologically to the legs and ankles. If the top system is disorganized (ie; the cranium), the ankles are taking the brunt of the weight being at the bottom, overcompensating to keep everything upright.


Testimonials (2)

I went to see Dr Tangri in 1999.I had a particular way of walking that had my whole pelvis swing back and forth as I walked, I had no freedom in my pelvis.  It moved as all one piece rather than the way it was designed to work.  Like most people I had one leg shorter than the other but did not notice either of these conditions as it had always been that way.

It was a day or two after my session that my husband noticed that I was no longer walking with my pelvis swinging back and forth. I was now walking like other people do… my pelvis was free!  Holy cow, I could hardly believe it.  What also happened was I gained an inch in height.  My spine had lengthened, my pelvis had freed up and I felt great!  I know there were other results from my subsequent sessions, but this one was the one that stands out for me as I continue to enjoy the freedom of walking that I still have.

Thank you so much for your help. Physically I’m a lot better, my right leg and hip are strong again, my periods have been normal, sleeping, digestion, allergies, vision everything has improved.

I noticed changes in my food preferences (healthier choices now), last week I quit coffee and I do a water fasting day every two weeks. So that is all good.

Thank you so much
