Joint loading has been implicated in the pathogenesis of knee osteoarthritis (OA). While compartment-specific measures such as the knee adduction moment have received much attention in the literature, less is known about other measures of dynamic loading in this patient population. This cross-sectional study assessed strength and walking patterns of 204 individuals with radiographically confirmed medial tibiofemoral OA and varus malalignment. Pearson product moment correlations and regression… CONTINUE READING
