I had my right ACL replaced in October of 05. It was replaced using a cadaver achilles tendon. While my knee feels very strong, it "crunches" when I squat and it aches when I try to get down on my haunches. I squat A2A fine but if Im on my toes and on my haunches it hurts to bend it all the way. Also, when Im going down in a squat I can hear it crunching around in there. Should I be worried? When I saw my surgeon a few months ago (my final visit before I got an OK to do all activities) he said it was nothing to be concerned about and that it would probably go away on its own.

Anyways, is this a normal sound / feeling? It doesnt hurt when it makes that noise its just weird.

Thank you,

Nick

Could just be scar tissue tearing and stretching?

Andy is probably right. As long as your surgeon is not worried about it, and it is not painful then I would not worry about it, it is very common and normal sound and feeling. I would expect it to hurt your knees if you are squating on your toes.

Woohoo!! Im normal! Although, Im sure my wife would disagree.

Why is it that it hurts to go on my toes and not back on my heels?

Thanks for the replys.

Nick

It increases the shear forces put on your patella.
