Purpose: Individuals with knee osteoarthritis (KOA) exhibit reduced muscles strength and proprioception. The interaction of muscle weakness and proprioception has been suggested to be predictive of functional outcomes in independent cohorts. It is thought that the poor muscle strength and proprioception impairs neuromuscular control which negatively impacts on health outcomes in KOA. The purpose of the study was to assess how biomechanical impairments associated with KOA determine the loss of neuromuscular control and its subsequent impact on health outcomes in KOA.
