Abstract

This paper outlines concepts of mechanics used in orthopaedics. These concepts are then demonstrated (assuming only a basic understanding of physics) with relevance to the hip and knee, and used to explain some common conditions. Some equations are used in this article for completeness; they are not essential to understanding the core principles.
