Knee replacement back and buttock psin

Posted , 3 users are following.

i am 12 weeks along with my second knee replacement, and it is quite different this time. About 4 weeks along developed pain in buttocks and lower back on left side on operated leg side. Have continued with my rehab and met the goals and included some exercise for glutes and back, Have tried massage and been to a chiropractor both said it was in the glutes muscle and did a hip adjustment. i am on tylenol because I cannot take anti inflamatories nothing is working I am in constant pain with the back area and legs swell more because of standing so much. i am thinking of trying an Osteopath,has anyone had experience with one, or any other suggestions.

    I also ended up with back pain and butt after 2nd replacement. i was told that your body is trying to realign itself from years of limping. i also did the PT for all the same things as you. i ended up seeing a pain management doc and made an appointment for steriod shots. Of course as soon as i did the pain started to subside. Its been 3 months since I canceled that appointment and feel great- finally!

    Other Pain After a TKR

    Everybody gets some or all of this. Incredibly common. My chiropractor fixed me up quickly... Except for a max 10 days of an NSAID (Aleve, etc.), NO DRUGS!!!!!!!!! Get it fixed.
