Dynamic loading of normal joints.


The biomechanics of joints are discussed with regard to the relative motion of the bones controlled by a combination of muscle forces, condylar shape, and ligamentous constraints. The author describes the joint reaction forces that are a result of muscle forces, and provides a detailed description of joint loads to the hip and knee.
