Back Pain

The first week after surgery I was in pain but it was not in my knee. I had back pain. My lower back hurt enough to make it difficult to get up from a chair. I remember that during my first week of PT I had trouble doing the straight leg raise. I could barely move with the pain in my lower back. On my second session of PT I had an ice treatment on my elevated knee and a heat treatment on my lower back. My PT examined my back and my right side was out of balance. I was told to do some stretching for my back and in about a week the pain was gone. Lately my right hip and right lower back have been bothering me. I have been doing more strengthening exercises and I have just started sparring again. I may be overdoing it a bit.
