Varus Thrust Gait


Posterolateral rotatory instability can cause instability during normal gait. This occurs because abnormal lateral compartment joint line opening occurs during foot strike. There is often associated uncontrolled external rotation of the tibia.



Untreated this leads to overloading of the medial compartment and premature osteoarthritis.
