The clinical importance of the known proprioceptive deficit in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee is unclear. Attention to the factors that influence proprioception is needed to better understand the role that proprioception plays in the disease process and to assess how these deficits influence clinical outcomes of various treatment options for osteoarthritis. We hypothesized that preoperative proprioception would be poorer in knees with greater symptoms and that knees considered… CONTINUE READING
