Hi. Have a problem with my knee. Play hockey weekley and have a recurring injury which appears whilst playing, the pain lasts for then and a few days after. Then comes back when play again. Went to a doctor last season who said to rest and rested all summer but still have the same problem. The pain is at the back of my knee on the right side, when I feel for the pain I rub the ligament so wondering whether it is musculat or ligament damage.

  • Hi, I am a physical therapist. First, there is not a ligament in the back of your knee that you can touch easily so I am guessing that it is not a ligament. Your symptoms are fairly vague. I would say you should consider seeing a physical therapist who can evaluate the situation. Resting from a sport alone does not solve an issue. Consider looking at this site to see if any of your symptoms match the conditions listed. Specifically look at the bakers cyst and meniscus tear pages. http://www.joint-pain-solutions.com/knee-joint-pain.html Hope this helps. Good luck. ~JTrempe PT, ATC
