Knee osteoarthritis (OA) has been suggested to increase the risk of falls. Low back pain (LBP) is a potential risk factor for falls in people with knee OA, but this has not been addressed adequately in previous studies. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between LBP and falls in people with knee OA in a 12-month period.
