We examine if relationships between knee osteoarthritis (OA) progression with knee moments and muscle activation during gait vary between patients with non-traumatic and post-traumatic knee OA.
This longitudinal study included participants with non-traumatic (n = 17) and post-traumatic (n = 18) knee OA; the latter group had a previous anterior cruciate ligament rupture.
Motion capture cameras, force plates, and surface electromyography measured knee moments and lower extremity muscle activation during gait.
Cartilage volume change were determined over 2 years using magnetic resonance imaging in four regions: medial and lateral plateau and condyle. Linear regression analysis examined relationships between cartilage change with gait metrics (moments, muscle activation), group, and their interaction.
