    Default Stretched Ligament?

    Hey guys, i recently suspect i stretched a ligament due to pain and the fact that i cannot put my right leg straight, this also limits me to limping around due to the pain?

    Am i victim of a stretched ligament? Or just some common knee pain

    Is it actually a muscular pain or a pain by the joint?
    And is it the front/back inner/outer knee?
    What action caused the pain?

    General advice is to try and take it easy for a while and it should work its way out, but still a doctor would be good if it has been a few days.

    It's by the joint, around the front, the usual areas someone would put athletic tape/knee braces around

    I'd apply some ice/frozen peas wrapped in a cloth on the area to reduce swelling, try not to use it too much for a day or two. Especially no badminton
    After that get in to see a doctor. You will probably get told to rest.
    A general ligament injury could be 4-6 weeks recovery, you may be lucky and only have 2-4 if it isn't severe
