Abstract

This publication includes 21 chapters describing in detail all elements of the normal and abnormal gait cycle and its various phases. Roles played by the joints and various parts of the skeletal system and muscles involved are explained and discussed. High-quality figures and sketches ably assist the reader in comprehending the text. Several chapters are devoted to pathological gait patterns, mechanisms, and gait deviations due to pathological conditions of the various joints in the lower extremities, trunk, and pelvis.
