Epidemiology of Osteoarthritis and Associated Comorbidities
Osteoarthritis of the spine: the facet joints
The view that the modern concept of FJ OA is consonant with the concept of OA as a failure of the whole joint, and not simply of facet joint cartilage is presented.
Trunk Muscle Attributes Are Associated With Balance and Mobility in Older Adults: A Pilot Study
Does this older adult with lower extremity pain have the clinical syndrome of lumbar spinal stenosis?
The diagnosis of the clinical syndrome of LSS requires the appropriate clinical picture and radiographic findings, and absence of pain when seated and improvement of symptoms when bending forward are the most useful individual findings.

To examine the association of concurrent low back pain (LBP), and other musculoskeletal pain comorbidity, with knee pain severity in symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA), a large number of patients diagnosed with OA have undergone hip replacement surgery.
Does lumbar spinal degeneration begin with the anterior structures? A study of the observed epidemiology in a community-based population
The observed epidemiology of lumbar spinal degeneration in the community-based population is consistent with an ordered progression beginning in the anterior structures, for the majority of individuals, however, some individuals demonstrate atypical patterns of degeneration, starting in the posterior joints.
Osteoarthritis in the Disabled Population: A Mechanical Perspective
The Accuracy of the Physical Examination for the Diagnosis of Midlumbar and Low Lumbar Nerve Root Impingement
Individual physical examination tests may provide clinical information that substantially alters the likelihood that midlumbarImpingement, low lumbar impingements, or level-specific impingement is present, and test combinations improve diagnostic accuracy for midlum-bar impingEMENT.
