      How does quadriceps weakness cause excess plantarflexion in mid and terminal stance?

      Hi Julia,
      Quadriceps weakness could cause knee hyperextension in stance as the individual seeks passive stability. Knee hyperextension entails posterior movement of the tibia, which would cause excess plantarflexion.
