There was a "need for an appropriately powered and well-controlled trial on the effect of valgus knee
bracing on persons with medial knee OA.
001 reference to normal knee) Valgus knee

However, the biophysiologic studies also identified changes in gait, suggesting that valgus knee
deformities could be exacerbated if patients with such conditions participated in yoga over a long period.
If this is the case, then interventions aimed at decreasing this load would need to be developed, as the simple set up modification tested in this study (external rotation of the foot) did not decrease the magnitude of this valgus knee
load (Table 1).
Because the weightbearing axis of the lower extremity follows the mechanical axis, a varus knee will experience a shift in the joint compressive pressures towards the medial compartment, and the valgus knee
will, similarly, experience a shift of the joint compressive pressures toward the lateral compartment.

In other studies, valgus knees
were reported to have the worst results after arthroscopic surgery.
