Same problem with me. There's not a lot they can do unless they just go in ur knee with a camera.I've had surgery on ur knee after playing basketball for 12 years...it's done nothing. I also refused to get the other surgeries I need, which are including a complete knee replacement on both knees.

Just take some IB Prophen or whatever, and ice after playing. I have no cartilage in my knees left, I have pops and bubbley sounds coming out of my knees when I bend down and I have to pop it out of place at least 20 times daily just to walk, even to sit down or get up. So I honestly, I suggest (this coming from a 17 year old) to not even ever consider knee surgery. Unless it's a Torn ACL or Meniscus.

But go to your doctor to get a pro's oppinion, and see where they send you. I think you need an MRI if it's THAT bad.

Good luck with it.

PS- You don't have Osgood Schlatter Disease unless you have a massive bump beneath your knee cap...I have that as well, you'd know if you had that...trust me.

Strains are injuries that affect muscles or tendons, thick bands that attach muscles to bones. They occur in response to a quick tear, twist, or pull of the muscle. Strains are an acute type of injury that results from overstretching or over contraction. Pain, weakness, and muscle spasms are common symptoms experienced after a strain occurs.

Sprains are injuries that affect ligaments, thick bands of cartilage that attach bone to bone. They occur in response to a stretch or tear of a ligament. Sprains are an acute type of injury that results from trauma such as a fall or outside force that displaces the surrounding joint from its normal alignment. Sprains can range from a mild ligamentous stretch to a complete tear. Bruising, swelling, instability, and painful movement are common symptoms experienced after a sprain occurs.

RICE is the acronym used for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. It is used as the best initial treatment of soft tissue injuries such as sprains, strains, and contusions. The combination of RICE helps reduce inflammation that occurs after acute injury. It is important to remember that the earlier this treatment is put into place, the more effective it is.

Rest: Rest and protect the injured area. If it hurts to bear weight on the injury, use crutches, or a cane.

Ice: Apply ice to the injury. The cold will reduce swelling and pain at the injured site. This step should be done as soon as possible. Apply the frozen object to the area for 20 minutes three times a day for the first 48 hours.

Compression: Compress the injured site. This will decreases swelling of the injured region. Although the wrap should be snug, make sure it is not too tight as this can cause numbness, tingling, or increased pain.

Elevation: Elevate the injured area above the level of the heart as much as possible. This technique will also assist in reducing the amount of swelling to the injured site.

Once the pain and swelling are eliminated, you should start gradual range of motion exercises but not to the point of pain. Each day your range of motion will increase slightly. Continue until you have complete range of motion. Than start gentle strengthening exercises to re-build the strength in the knee.

The stiffness will go away over time.

Good Luck

I would say go to a doctor. Better safe than sorry.
