Spinal stenosis prevalence and association with symptoms: the Framingham Study.
TLDR
The prevalence of acquired stenosis increased with age, and LSS is associated with a threefold higher risk of experiencing low back pain and the association with LBP. Expand
Spondylolysis and Spondylolisthesis: Prevalence and Association With Low Back Pain in the Adult Community-Based Population
TLDR
This study did not reveal a significant association between the observation of spondylolysis on CT and the occurrence of LBP, suggesting that the condition does not seem to represent a major cause of L BP in the general population. Expand
Dry Needling in the Management of Musculoskeletal Pain
TLDR
This clinical narrative review has attempted to introduce dry needling, a relatively new method for the management of musculoskeletal pain, to the general medical community, and suggests using the superficial technique, which has been shown to be effective, albeit to a lesser extent. Expand
Facet Joint Osteoarthritis and Low Back Pain in the Community-Based Population
TLDR
It is failed to find an association between FJ OA, identified by multidetector CT, at any spinal level and LBP in a community-based study population. Expand
Lumbar facet joint osteoarthritis: a review.
TLDR
Up-to-date knowledge of this subject can be helpful in the development of diagnostic techniques and in the prevention of lumbar FJ osteoarthritis and low back pain and can assist in the determination of future research goals. Expand
Lumbar lordosis.
TLDR
Normal lordosis values for different groups/populations are presented based on the specific characteristics of each individual and it seems that the optimal position for radiologic measurement of lordosis is standing with arms supported while shoulders are flexed at a 30° angle. Expand
Changes in paraspinal muscles and their association with low back pain and spinal degeneration: CT study
TLDR
The paraspinal muscle density decreases with age, and increases BMI; it is associated with at some levels FJOA, spondylolisthesis and disc narrowing at the same level, but not associated with occurrence of LBP. Expand
Low back pain among professional bus drivers: ergonomic and occupational-psychosocial risk factors.
TLDR
Work-related ergonomic and psychosocial factors showed a significant association with LBP in Israeli professional urban bus drivers, and prevention of work-related stress, organizational changes targeted to reduce stressful situations, improvement in seat comfort, and encouraging regular sports activity need to be evaluated. Expand
Diagnosis and conservative management of degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis
TLDR
The symptoms, prognosis and conservative treatments for symptoms associated with degenerative spondylolisthesis, a disorder that causes the slip of one vertebral body over the one below due to degenerative changes in the spine, are reviewed. Expand
Computed tomography-evaluated features of spinal degeneration: prevalence, intercorrelation, and association with self-reported low back pain.
TLDR
Degenerative features of the lumbar spine were extremely prevalent in this community-based sample and the only degenerative feature associated with self-reported LBP was spinal stenosis, which appears to be unassociated with LBP. Expand
