Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The gait characteristics of patients with OA of the knee have been wellstudied and reported; however, less attention has been paid to the postural differences between OA affected and healthy knees. The aim of this study was to investigate the postural differences that may affect the gait in an OA group compared to the controls.
