Low Back Pain: Your low back pain could be related to your knee problems, however, it could be a separate issue all together. If there are underlying disc herniations, lumbar facet joint arthritis and enlargement, or spinal stenosis - these could all lead to pressure on spinal nerves that can cause pain. Low back pain can also be due to the surrounding parapsinal muscles being inflamed or in spasm.
