Asymptomatic and symptomatic individuals with the same radiographic evidence of knee osteoarthritis walk with different knee moments and muscle activity
There is an established discordance between the structural joint damage and clinical symptoms of knee osteoarthritis; however, there has been little investigation into the differences in joint level biomechanics and muscle ...
Knee joint biomechanics and neuromuscular control during gait before and after total knee arthroplasty are sex-specific.
The future of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery will involve planning that incorporates more patient-specific characteristics. Despite known biological, morphological, and functional differences between men and women, ...
Obesity is associated with prolonged activity of the quadriceps and gastrocnemii during gait
Purpose: To examine the effect of obesity and its potential interaction with knee OA presence on the electromyography patterns of the major knee joint periarticular muscles during walking. Scope: One hundred and eighteen ...
Changes in Knee Joint Muscle Activation Patterns during Walking Associated with Increased Structural Severity in Knee Osteoarthritis
Purpose To determine whether alterations in knee joint muscle activation patterns during gait were related to structural severity determined by Kellgren–Lawrence (KL) radiographic grades, for those with a moderate knee ...
Reliability of surface electromyographic recordings during walking in individuals with knee osteoarthritis
To determine test–retest reliability of a surface electromyographic protocol designed to measure knee joint muscle activation during walking in individuals with knee osteoarthritis (OA). Twenty-one individuals with moderate ...
Neuromuscular alterations exist with knee osteoarthritis presence and severity despite walking velocity similarities
Background Neuromuscular strategies during walking in individuals with knee osteoarthritis are being explored for diagnostic information; however, isolating differences to disease progression is difficult given walking ...
