sore back
I have had a knee replacement and have been suffering with back ache. I visit the physio regularly who thinks one leg is 2 cm longer than the other and this is causing my problem. I have ITB syndrome in the leg with the replacement. What happens is that I get low back pain often with associated nerve pain, physio sorts it out and the following week I have neck or thoracic back pain and so the cycle goes. currently my neck and shoulder are sore my right shoulder is noticably lower than my left shoulder when standing normally. My question who can help me assess the cause of my problem and help me find a solution?
