During impingement in 50108, under pure valgus
loading, the strain was observed to be mostly compressive despite a decrease in impingement force.
One of the structures that is involved in this function is the adductor muscle of the hallux, which can produce hallux valgus
or rigid hallux when an imbalance occurs in its normal activity.
Also too small shoes contribute to the formation of hallux valgus
and hammer toe.
A skier's thumb is named for the valgus
moment that a ski pole places onto a thumb when one falls while skiing.
stress test was used to evaluate medial elbow stability.
knee bracing can be uncomfortable, leading to poor adherence, but there are no long-term negative consequences.
It was hypothesized that 1) participants with a varus alignment will have a greater KAM compared to participants with a neutral or valgus
alignment, and 2) KAM will not differ regardless usage of a toe clip.
The researchers found that between males and females there were no significant differences in the position of injury with regard to knee flexion (P = 0.66), valgus
(P = 0.87), internal tibial rotation (P = 0.26), or anterior tibial translation (P = 0.18).
A solid foot plant with a valgus
stress on the knee (Mechanism 2) was the second most common mechanism.
The preoperative mechanical axis measured by X-ray was between 24.5[degrees] varus and 22.9[degrees] valgus
The osteotomy did not lead to valgus
but to a correction of 5 degrees of the varus (previously 20 degrees).
