Pain in the joint.. Related to nerves
My mother recently slipped and since then has pain in her knee. It's likely related to nerves as the pain is not the same as joint pains. We have already gone for physiotherapy but didn't work. The pain is in a nerve in her leg and reaches all the way to the waist. Should i consult a neurologist?

One of the common reasons for backpain radiating to thighs or knee is Prolapse Intervertebral disc (PIVD). It can result after trauma. The patient is generally unable to lift the whole leg in supine position due to unbearable pain. It can be diagnosed by a MRI Scan If confirmed treatment consists of Physiotherapy, Traction, Steroid injection, Analgesics, Neuropathic painkillers, Vit B12, etc If the above methods fail, last resort is Surgery though recurrence is common
