    Lateral knee pain; stiffness behind knee
    I'm an active 51 year old tennis player and golfer. I tore my medial meniscus in January and elected to rehab vs surgery. Now 3 months later pain has moved laterally and I'm getting stiffness behind my knee. MRI showed meniscus tear in posterior horn inferior and a small Baker's cyst. Treatment so far has been RICE, physio, exercises, stretching, ITB massage and message. Any thoughts on how to relieve stiffness behind knee? Thank you.

    Have you tried pain relieving gels? Bio freze is a good one. I think you can probably order it from the internet. It is similar to icy hot and bengay, but it is a gel and works better.
