Locomotive syndrome is a condition of reduced mobility due to problems with locomotive organs.
Although lumbar spinal canal stenosis is one of the major diseases constituting locomotive syndrome, only few studies have focused on the association between the two pathologies.
We aimed to investigate the effect of surgery on lumbar spinal canal stenosis with respect to locomotive syndrome using various physical function tests, including locomotive syndrome risk tests, before and after surgery.
Clinical data of 101 consecutive patients (male = 46; female = 55; mean age, 69.3 years) who underwent surgery for lumbar spinal canal stenosis at our institute were prospectively collected.
