I am experiencing knee pain with bruising i barely can run and walk up stair. i was told it was a grade 1 sprain. it only hurts in the back of knee?
knee ..STOP running! LIMIT stair climbing and apply heat where it hurts...pain in the back of the knee (POLITEAL area) is sometimes from a POPLITEAL CYST which inn-turn may be associated with mensceal (Internal cartilage) pathology. Consult with your PCP (Primary Care Provider) an MRI may be indicated,

So one condition, for example, would be if you were developing chondromalacia of the patella and when you are putting more force on it while going uphill it is becoming symptomatic. Consider being seen. ...Read more
