  • Knee Biomechanics Textbooks

    Dear All,

    Here are all the recommendations I recieved for my recent request for
    basic knee biomechanic textbooks. Thanks to all concerned.

    1.

    From: "Andrew Hart"

    I have just finished my PhD in the area of the knee and found that there
    is only a small
    area of books that deal with the knee. Depending on your subject area I
    have given a
    book below that may be of use. However, I would recommend using
    publications
    rather than books as these are more upto date.
    Evans P, 1986, The Knee Joint, Churchill Livingstone.

    Try Biomechanical basis of human movement" by Joseph Hamill &
    Kathleen M. Knutzen, Williams & Wilkens, Baltimore, 1995, ISBN 0-
    683-03863-X.
    It's pretty basic but rather complete.

    I found really usefull for the biomechanics of the knee, from both the
    biomechanical and clinical point of view the book
    Knee Ligaments: structure, function, injury and repair
    by Daniel et al. Raven press

    Try and have a look at. Gait Anlaysis: Theory and Application, Craik
    and Oatis, Mosby 1995.

    I would suggest reading Root, M. et.al. Abnormal and Normal Function of
    the Foot, Clinical Biomechanics Corp., Los Angeles, 1977 which is
    available from a college of podiatric medicine. Without understanding
    foot mechanics
    and pathomechanics, many problems of the knee, such as PFS, gradual onset
    DJD, etc.
    cannot be understood. It is their interaction, as a repetitive strain
    injury, which can
    create the potential for destructive forces to be the applied to the
    knee. If the foot:knee
    effect goes unrecognized, then unresolved pain would appear as a primary
    knee
    pathology when in reality it is a secondary result of repeated stress.

    I'm looking at the biomechanics of the hip and femur for my PhD.
    A good book is Joint structure and function: A comprehensive analysis by
    Norkin and Levangie.

    From: "Cheryl Riegger-Krugh"

    LeVeau B: Biomechanics of Human Motion - Williams and Wilkins, 3rd
    Ed., 1992

    Winter D: Biomechanics and Motor Control of Human Movement, Wiley
    Interscience, 1990

    Burstein AH and Wright TM: Fundamentals of Orthopaedic
    Biomechanics Williams and Wilkins, 1994

    I highly recommend Knee Ligaments: Structure, Function, Injury and
    Repair by Daniel, Akeson and O'Connor, for its treatment of knee
    biomechanics.
