Question on "Back pain and Knee Pain Relationship." - Orthopaedic Surgeon replies.

Back pain is very common in the population. There are multiple causes for back pain and sometimes these can co-exist with one another.
Common causes include muscle ache due to strains or inadequate strength, pain from the facet joints, pain from irritation of the spinal nerves and pain from the intervertebral disc.
Pain in the knee is less commonly related to back pain. It is more usually caused by degeneration or injury to the knee.
An assessment by an orthopaedic surgeon will enable you to identify and treat the pain accordingly.
