A 27-year-old male asked:

I've been doing physical therapy, but after exercise yesterday, why would i have lower back pain radiating into my knee and front knee on the right?

Radiating pain: Pain after therapy radiating down the leg to the knee is most likely related to nerve irritation. I suggest you go back into the physician who referred you to physical therapy and be reassessed.
