OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that selected gait kinematics, particularly lateral trunk lean, observed in patients with medial compartment knee osteoarthritis explain variation in dynamic knee joint load. METHOD In this cross-sectional observational study, 120 patients with radiographically confirmed varus gonarthrosis underwent three-dimensional gait analysis at their typical walking speed. We used sequential (hierarchical) linear regression to examine the amount of variance in dynamic… CONTINUE READING
