Abstract

Degenerative Changes in Lumbar Region Always Lead to Bilateral Degenerative Changes in Knee-Joints and Vice-Versa: Sensation of Pain Cannot Only be The Parameter of Degeneration

Apurba Ganguly

The perception of pain through gait control theory was promulgated five decade ago. It involves a process of inhibitory pain modulator at the spinal cord level. The present paper aims with detailed observations, involving a large number of patients, that knee joint pain may not be felt when there are degenerative changes in the lumbar region due to disc compression. But disc compression at lumbar region always leads to degenerative changes in the knees, whether pain is felt or not. Similarly knee joint pain with degenerative tissue damage is always associated with disc compression at lumbar region, whether pain is felt or not. This phenomenon is obvious in large number of patients irrespective of sex, age, bodyweight, lifestyle and ethnic barriers, examined with either pain in knee joints or in lumbar region. This research is supported by anatomical measurements, radiological and biochemical reports. This present study revels for the first time a new method of anatomical measurements with supportive clinical observations.
