PURPOSE L5 radiculopathy leads to weakness in ankle dorsiflexor, which can further affect ambulation status. The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristics of gait patterns associated with L5 radiculopathy. METHOD Nineteen patients with ankle dorsiflexor weakness due to L5 radiculopathy and 16 people with normal control underwent three-dimensional gait analysis. The comparison was made with three categories such as involved side, intact side of patients and normal control… CONTINUE READING
