Fig. 1.5.1 Kinetic analysis of a continuous flexion/extension of the elbow joint. The top panel shows the net joint moment calculated by inverse dynamics. Extensor dominance is here defined as positive values. The middle panel shows the angular velocity; extension is positive. The lower panel shows the muscle power obtained by multiplication of joint moment and angular velocity; positive power indicates concentric contraction and negative power eccentric contraction of the dominating muscle group at a given point during the movement. Adapted from Winter [25].

Osteoarthritis

Thank you for deciding to learn more about the disorder, Osteoarthritis. Inside these pages, you will learn what it is, who is most at risk for developing it, what causes it, and some treatment plans to help those that do have it feel better. While there is no definitive “cure” for Osteoarthritis, there are ways in which individuals can improve their quality of life and change the discomfort level to one that can be tolerated on a daily basis.
