Patient :I have a pain behind my knee which sometime occurs when I walk. I have been playing football on hard surfaces for about a year with no real support however behind my knee, a tendon has swollen in the inner part of my knee and i'm not sure why. It has been a week since I have done any exercise and it still hurts. How long will it take to heal and how do I make sure not to make this happen again?
