  1. The biometrics of knee and hip turn are so important, not just to make a better swing, improve contact, increase distance, etc, but also in terms of reducing stresses on and wear and tear and injury to the meniscus pads on either side of the knee joint. This degenerative process can take years and can be asymptomatic, on top of normal aging of those simple looking but complex tissues, until you suddenly have a blowup with swelling and pain at 8 or 9 out of 10. I know because it happened to me. Arthroscopic surgery is an option but comes with risks and takes about 6 months and physical therapy rehab to restore strength in quadriceps muscles supporting the knee. If they do a partial meniscectomy to snip away frayed tissue or a tear flap, it inevitably changes the spacing between the femur and tibia. Small as it seems, that can throw off your balance and gait. The menisci perform critical shock absorbing and load distribution functions, and reducing them promotes degeneration of the cartilage covering the ends of the femur and tibia that leads to osteoarthritis and eventually possible knee replacement. These days there is a growing consensus among the medical profession that arthroscopic surgery for meniscus wear and tear is not recommended for people over 70 unless it is a case of traumatic injury because conservation of the tissue is more important to avoid osteoarthritis so treatment is with medication to reduce pain and swelling and physical therapy to restore strength and movement. At my age, 82, having played golf for over 60 years, seeing it as a vital activity for both pleasure and mental and physical wellbeing, and still working to improve, this issue of the rotational and compressive forces at work on the knees and hips becomes extremely important. And right now itโ€™s precisely my right or trail knee. The blow up could have been caused by spending too much time working on my swing and knee and hip rotation at an indoor practice bay that enabled me to spend an hour a day up to five days a week. I now understand it came on top of years of gradual more or less normal wear. All of this is to say that I would like to see biomechanics experts and swing coaches like this one add to their excellent advice an extra element of understanding the possible injurious impacts of the movements involved and how to minimize them and protect ourselves.
