Table 3 Poisson regressions of the relationship between multiple falls and knee pain; univariate models with a single covariate, followed by multivariate models, and p values associated with the independent samples t-test of each variable with knee pain and faller group status

From: Reduced strength, poor balance and concern about falls mediate the relationship between knee pain and fall risk in older people
