Hi All,
Perhaps some of you remember my prior postings. I am working on an
osteoarthritis book with Dr. Bob Arnot, NBC. I am not too keen on the
biomechanics of strength training and want to include these aspects in our
book.

Can anyone tell me with complete certainty what forces in the knee you are
particularly concerned with when recommending rehab exercises to knee OA
patients? Is it the compressive forces and shear forces? Posteriorly or
anteriorly?
And with the patellofemoral patients, is it the patellofemoral compressive
forces you are most concerned with?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Suzanne
