Muscle function and joint loading in older adults: Implications on age-related osteoarthritis, by Dr Lauri Stenroth (University of Eastern Finland)

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease mainly affecting older adults. The knee is the most commonly affected joint. Abnormal mechanical loading of the joint has been implicated as one of the main contributors to disease progression. Musculoskeletal simulations have provided insights on the potential role calf muscles have on knee joint loading suggesting that age-related decline in calf muscle function may be detrimental for knee joint health.
