I am having pain in the back of my leg in the bend of my knee. I play soccer and basketball. What are the muscles in this area of my knee/leg and what could be causing the pain in this area?

Hi - must not be an muscle problem, could be one or more of the bursas in backside oof your knee. You should see a physical therapeut to find out. Search the web for "knee bursitis" to find out more. / Krister
