Abstract

Abnormal loading of the medial compartment of the knee is believed to be a contributing factor to the development of medial compartment knee osteoarthritis (OA). Treatment strategies for patients with medial knee OA include both invasive (i.e., surgery) and non-invasive (e.g., gait modification) options. A variety of modified gait patterns have been proposed as non-invasive treatments for patients with medial knee OA.
