<< It is possible to realign a knee. Or better put to derotate it. The
positioning of bones at the joints is controlled by the soft tissue. When a
joint space is shortened traumatically the joint rotates.... >>


Bullshit. Positioning of the bones of the equine "knee" is determined by the
articulating surfaces of those bones. Any deviation whatsoever is going to
cause severe injury that cannot be "adjusted".

I will present your analysis to Jim Rooney for comment next time I have a
chance. Next time I talk to an orthopedic surgeon, I'll ask him about the
human knee and "adjustments".
