BACKGROUND Patients with medial compartment osteoarthritis of the knee may be treated nonoperatively with adjustable valgus bracing. HYPOTHESIS Valgus bracing reduces load on the medial compartment through the application of an external valgus moment about the knee, resulting in pain relief. STUDY DESIGN Prospective cohort study. METHODS Eleven patients were tested using an instrumented brace and three-dimensional gait analysis. We measured the valgus moment applied by the adjustable… CONTINUE READING
