site, where articular surface damage narrows the joint space, resulting in altered internal peak knee abductor moment (peak KAM). 7 Altered peak KAM is associated with knee OA severity, 8 cartilage degeneration/loss, 9 and static malalignment 10 and has been shown to be a reliable indicator of

and rehabilitation, individuals who undergo ACL–r inevitably suffer from persistent quadriceps atrophy and weakness for a long term. 6 These unresolved strength deficits decrease athletic performance, increase the risk of reinjury, 7 and likely contribute to the progression of cartilage damage

 al., 2017 ). Interestingly, dietary proline and HC are both incorporated into the skin of rats ( Matsuda et al., 2006 ); however, HC is preferentially incorporated into musculoskeletal tissues including muscle, cartilage, and bone ( Oesser et al., 1999 ). Furthermore, supplementing with HC has been shown to

ROM during the squat when compared with controls. Increased adduction ( P  = .03) and less internal rotation ( P  = .03) were seen in subjects with FAI-CAM (with and without cartilage lesions) during the drop landing when compared with controls. No difference was found between groups for walking

a stable hip joint. Hip dysplasia is a congenital condition in which the head of the femur is not adequately covered by the acetabulum. Dysplasia creates a smaller surface area for the femur, which increases the load placed on the hip socket and can lead to degeneration of the articular cartilage

in the Research Report by Wikstrom et al., higher vertical ground reaction force (vGRF) loading rates cause more chondrocyte death and cartilage matrix damage. a. True b. False 13. In this study, participants with chronic ankle instability (CAI) demonstrated significantly higher vGRF loading rates

not clearly understood even today. However, mechanical trauma, genetic factors, and cytokines are thought to be effective in pathogenesis. Due to these factors, a degenerative cascade is initiated which causes joint cartilage damage. However, ineffective repairment of joint damage—which was caused by
