Patient : I think i hyper-extended my knee. When I woke up the next morning my knee was swollen and appeared that the back of my knee was also swollen. I have continued too ice and then heat my knee as I live my very active life. It is starting to get stiff and I'm not sure if i should just rest it or try to force it to work normally and push it as if I was recovering from surgery. Please help me.
