RESEARCH PEARL - Knee Pain and Disc Height


Knee pain and back pain? A new research study connects the disc height with pain issues:

  • T12/L1 with buttock pain and prior vertebral fractures
  • L1/L2, L2/L3, L3/L4 with knee pain, particularly L2/L3.
Do you find that patients with knee pain find relief when you treat their spines? Everything is connected!
