Frank....yes.

And what I've found is that let's take someone, for example, with bowledggedness (varus knee stress). What tends to happen is over time, it gets more pronounced as their motion patterns "feed" the muscles that are already over-engaged in supporting this posture, thus amplifying it. We'll see folks with bowledggedness or knock knees (valgus knee stress) where it will get significantly better through corrective exercises, as we're now able to strip away the layer of it that is NOT congenital, but is instead lifestyle-driven. And the more neutral a position we can get the knee in, the longer that knee will last and the more it will be able to do.
