Is there a link between lower back and knee pain?

Is there a link between lower back and knee pain?

Possibly: If your knee pain causes you to limp the altered mechanics of motion in your back may lead to pain. On the other hand if there is nerve compression in the back it may lead to nerve pain that radiates to the knee. Or there may be a problem in both areas. Careful evaluation is the key to diagnosis. ...Read more

What do you recommend if i take hydrocodone once in a while for back and knee pain?

What do you recommend if i take hydrocodone once in a while for back and knee pain?

Key-once in a while: Hydrocodone (vicodin, norco, (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) others) has the potential to be highly addictive when taken for more than a short period of time-perhaps a week or two. If it truly "once in a while, " then there is probably know harm. I make my living treating opiate dependence, and most patients started slowly, then gradually increased to opiate dependence.

Bakers cyst: There are a number of possibilities, but probably the most common is a bakers cyst; which is a herniation of the posterior aspect of the capsule between two tendons in the back of the knee. It can cause the back of the knee to be swollen, tender, and quite painful. Because having a blood clot is another possibility and can be life threatening, you should be checked. ...Read more

Pain back of knee &pain underneath kneecap on shin. extreme limp after sitting down.feels stiff but stretched out. No injury,pain for about 2months?

Chondromalacia patel: this sounds like chondromalacia patella which is softening of the cartilage underneath your kneecap. Best treatment for this is to do exercises that strengthen your quadriceps muscles. You can discuss with your physician about this or after your evaluation if x-rays and other imaging looks okay you could have physical therapy help you work on a new program ...Read more

What do you advise if i want to tone up but back and knee pain prevents me from doing high impact workouts. What are my options?

Core Exercises: Typically core strengthening exercises are the best to help relieve pressure and forces in the spine. I would try and google some or look them up on youtube to see descriptions. If you can do them yourself, wonderful otherwise ask your doctor to get a referral to a good physical therapist for further assistance. If your knees hurt that much, recommend getting imaging studies to see whats up. ...Read more

New to the area  have been on methadone 10 mg, lisinopril 20 mg ,amiodipine 10 mg 7 years for back and knee pain . Looking for dr to continue my care?

Should be no problem: for the amlodopine and lisinopril, but good luck on the methadone front. The time to find a doctor when you are on a controlled substance is BEFORE you make a move. This should be done in concert with the original prescribing physician, who can both help locate a prospective doctor for you, send records and have a discussion so the other doctor feels comfortable with prescribing methadone. ...Read more

Back of knee pain.When i put pressure on it there is a sharp pain in the back/middle of my knee. It also hurts to bend it. Is it just a sprain?

Back of knee pain.When i put pressure on it there is a sharp pain in the back/middle of my knee. It also hurts to bend it. Is it just a sprain?

Maybe: It could be a strain, but could also be an injury to the articular cartilage (lining of the ends of the bone), meniscus (cartilage pad), or even a fracture. If your symptoms do not respond to rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory meds or is causing you severe limitations, see an orthopedic doctor for an evaluation. If he/she feels further testing is needed, an xray or MRI will be ordered. Good luck! ...Read more
