Until now, clinical orthopaedic concepts of injury, repair, and restoration of function of musculoskeletal systems have been described and understood primarily in structural and biomechanical terms. This perception probably evolved because the structural characteristics are the most readily visualized factors, both in the clinical setting (for example, pathological laxity due to a ruptured ligament or a… CONTINUE READING
