Hi all...
It all started about a year ago when I got checked during a Ice hockey game, I don't know how I landed wrong but when I got up I felt a sharp pain in the back of my left knee and didn't return. I went to a clinic the next day and the doctor put pressure on my leg in every direction but the pain did not get any worse, the doctor said it is just a pulled muscle, 'give it a couple of weeks and you should be fine'... However I didn't return to the ice until a month later with a $30 knee brace. The pain was mostly gone but it felt weak. I continued playing for the rest of the season and there was always a light pain, felt weak and knee cap bone cracks here and there.
Later I went to a different doc, had x-trays done, doc said that my cartilage are rubbing, told me to see a physiotherapist. So I went, because I had no coverage, therapist gave me some exercise to do. Stretching, leg workouts and massaging the whole leg. When I do the exercise and massage, the knee cracks are gone and it does feel better.
Three days ago, I played squash (wearing a knee brace), I was playing lightly, 20 mins of playing 20 mins of stretching for 2 hours, knee felt great until the next day, going up the stairs, a sharp pain in the inner knee cap. I have not had that pain for like 6 months!

What should be my next step? I am starting Floor hockey once a week. I am an active person, and I do not play hard, mainly for the workout.
Would that make it worse?

Thanks alot for listening and replying.
