Doctor :   I am
User :   I have a question regarding a knee injury
Doctor :   How may i help you ?
Doctor :   Goahead
User :   I fell last week on the stairs and bent the knee backwards (towards the thigh). it has been growing sore....
User :   However, it's not unbearable, just sore. Mainly in the back of the knee...lack of range of motion..
Doctor :   Is the pain constant ?
User :   I am 25 and athletic, no preexisitng knee injuries whatsoever
Doctor :   Are you able to walk ?
User :   yea
User :   I can walk
User :   it just feels weak
User :   If I extend it I can feel the pain in the back of hte knee...
User :   I never heard a pop or snap or anything of that nature...
Doctor :   well then there is nothing to worry about as if the knee ligament was broken or displaced you would have had unbearable pain
User :   ok...
Doctor :   jsut give it rest
User :   So, would you recommend a wrap or anything?
Doctor :   wear a splint
Doctor :   yes
User :   So, it's probably just a pulled muscle ?
