There is evidence that joint load is a factor in the development of osteoarthritis (OA) and, while altered gait profiles have been linked with OA, it is unknown if abnormal gait is a cause or effect of the disease. While the knee's adduction moment has been implicated in the development and progression of knee OA, it is also known that shearing forces are detrimental to the health of cartilage. The purpose of this pilot study was to examine the adduction moment and gait shear forces to… CONTINUE READING
