Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the validity of varus–valgus motion as a measure of knee joint stability by establishing the relationship of varus–valgus motion with muscle strength, joint proprioception, joint laxity and skeletal alignment in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA).
