Back pain after knee surgery is one of the common complains that patients do to knee replacement surgeon when they go for their follow up visit.
Have you done that? I remember my mom used to tell same thing to me quite often following her knee arthroscopy few years ago.
Surgery usually is not a causative factor for back pain but as patient feels the severity of back pain after knee surgery has increased they relate it to surgery.
Knee replacement surgery has been performed for last many years as a successful treatment of knee arthritis problem and has been one of the main stay for patients for whom all other treatment alternative did not give any benefits.
Let us see why it happens and weather it is a serious concern or issue for patient or a doctor.
Be it any kind of surgery that is Knee replacement surgery, arthroscopy, cartilage replacement or acl surgery, before surgery patient must be given anesthesia.
Although not a major concern it could be easily treated with following approach:
Personally I would say if it is not a major pain issue and you can bear it try to bear it and avoid some kind of anti inflammatory medicines.
But if your pain threshold is so less or if you want to be absolutely pain free then you can take some medicines.
Also physical therapy sessions can help you with your back pain after knee surgery in the same way as if you never had knee replacement surgery.
And do not forget to do some self mild heat therapy at home.
