I developed a torn ACL in 1988. The Air Force and Va did not want to treat it as I was only in my 30's. The knee problem developed into a bone on bone situation. I finally found a surgeon to replace the knee. My question is before I had my surgery I developed severe back pain. The MRI show compression and scaring. I had no back injury and am trying to find information coordinating the change in my gait to the back pain. This went on from 1988 until 2005 when I finally had surgery. if anyone can steer me to articles conforming my problem please let me know. ThanksView Thread
