Does hip osteoarthritis causes lower back pain

Posted , 1 user is following.

I had a partial knee replacement 3 me months ago due to osteoarthritis. Two years ago I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in the hip on that same side as I was getting groin and hip pain.

The last month the hip and groin pain has been so much worse I am now getting sharp pain like sciatica in my lower back. It's there constantly. My knee is now feeling worse too and I'm struggling to walk.

Seeing physio next week. Does hip osteoarthritis cause pain in back too?
