Hello doctor,

I have been experiencing pain in my back whenever I walk, and I have also been suffering from pain in my shoulder and knee. I have had these issues before with the same symptoms. Please help.



Welcome to icliniq family,

After reviewing your question, I understand that you are experiencing back, shoulder, and knee pain. It is important to note that back pain can be caused by a variety of factors, such as muscle sprains or strains, misalignments, systemic problems, and disc herniations. The location of your back pain can help identify potential causes. Nearly 80 percent of people will experience back pain at some point in their life. What part of your back hurts? Neck? Mid back? Low back? Each one of these areas may have a number of things that could cause back pain. You mentioned you have knee pain and shoulder pain. For some patients, shoulder pain can actually be related to neck problems. In addition to that, many times when people have knee pain and knee issues, it can cause the body to compensate which may result in low back or hip pain. My professional recommendation is for you to see a local chiropractor for a proper examination. They can determine if chiropractic care is appropriate for you and recommend a course of treatment. Chiropractic care may help alleviate your pain and improve your overall health.
