Do you consider the neural influence of skin and fascia?
"This article examines pathological responses produced by scars, analyzing definitions and differences. At the same time, it considers the subcutaneous fascias, as this connective structure is altered when there is a discontinuous cutaneous surface."
"The skin is an organ that can influence body homeostasis. It is good practice, when evaluating the clinical picture of a patient, to always ascertain the presence of scars.
Looking at the patient as a system and not just as a symptom or a symptomatological segment will help the clinician, and all those professionals who use manual techniques, to find a more effective treatment.
A scar can produce different symptoms, which can affect the neurological sphere, the fascial, and the visceral area.
The skin surface is a means to communicate with the nervous system, to understand it, and to give therapeutic information.
We can conclude by affirming that the skin and the fascias represent the skeletal system of the nervous system."

The Real Reason Why People MUST Squat Differently
If your patient is having trouble squatting (pain free) with the desired form one way and not another, femoral neck and acetabular versions could well play a role.
Understanding how structural variance can govern and limit functional range is a must. In other words, coaching the individual toward a perfect squat should rather be coaching the right squat toward the individual.
Does your patient have good dorsiflexion and hip flexion yet still feels like they will fall back if they squat lower? Don't forget femoral length is also a variable. The longer the femur (especially in relation to the tibia) the further back the pelvis and centre of mass will be.
EXTRA: Also think tibial torsions for the lower leg, and once you get your head around those, consider how they may function with femoral variations.
In the upper extremity, in pitchers (especially those starting at a young age) humeral torsions can frequently limit shoulder IR due to torsional stresses.
