MINI: In multivariate logistic regression analysis in 1,128 elderly people, NeP(+) (odds ratio (OR): 3.01), positive spinal inclination (OR: 1.14), and high VAS for LBP (OR: 1.04) were identified as risk factors for low physical QOL, and NeP(+) (OR: 5.32) was the only significant risk factor for low mental QOL.
