OBJECTIVES There is considerable evidence that an abnormally high knee adductor moment is a characteristic of the gait patterns in people with knee osteoarthritis (OA). The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between the peak knee adduction moment during the early and late stance phases of gait, and medial and lateral tibial bone size and cartilage volume in healthy women. METHODS Three-dimensional Vicon gait analyses and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were performed on 20… CONTINUE READING
