Is my knee pain and back pain related?

Mild patellofemoral chondromalacia with minimal patella alta. I was diagnosed three years ago with that. Last year I was diagnosed with mild spondyltic and disc degenerative changes present at mutiple levels in my back. I was wondering if my knee pain is causing my back pain?

Hi..
Thanks for the query..

Seems to be two different issues..
I would like you to consult an Orthopedician and get evaluated..
Thorough clinical examination and investigations like MRI Scan and blood tests can help in diagnosis and treatment can be done accordingly..
For now avoid over exertion, do physical therapy under supervision of a trained physiotherapy and take pain relievers and muscle relaxants..

Hope this helps..

Regards..
