Biomechanics in orthopaedics: Considerations of the lower limb

Abstract:
This article outlines concepts of mechanics used in orthopaedics. These concepts are then demonstrated (assuming only a basic understanding of physics) with relevance to the hip, knee, ankle and foot and used to explain some common conditions. Some equations are used in this article for completeness; they are not essential to understanding the core principles. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
