My left hand hurts when I try to overhead squat. Something about the contortion that an OVHD squat requires makes it hurt. Also, I have a bony projection that has developed in my left hand. It's been there for years, but until I tried overhead squatting, I never had any pain.

My right hand feels fine. But when I try to do the OVHD squat, my left hand hurts, and hurts more the next day.

Is this a PT issue, or a surgical issue? I need to see a PT for other (knee) issues, but I'm not sure what to do about the hand. It's bearable, but only barely.

If it's a bony issue I'd get it checked out by an ortho so he/she can do some X-rays.

Saw a doctor. Said nothing was wrong and if overhead squatting hurts my hand, stop overhead squatting.

Went to another doctor for my knees and he said the same thing about squats.

Not sure I should have paid before I left.
