Additional info: Structural misalignment of the knee, hip, or ankle produces regional or whole body imbalance that cannot be adequately addressed with surgery or physical therapy to one isolated area or joint. GAS (General Adaptation Syndrome) from pain and musculoskeletal stress can produce whole body fatigue which is greatly relieved by structural correction and use of herbs.
