Chiropractor Fanwood & Scotch Plains Talks About Knee Misalignment and Back Pain
Knee Misalignment and Back Pain
Can knee alignments be used to predict chronic low back pain?
A new study suggests it can. An analysis of data regarding 789 youth athletes revealed that those with knee misalignment had an increased risk for developing chronic low back pain.
The findings underline the importance of an examination of the motor system of young athletes and perhaps the general population to aid in prevention of future low back pain.
