Re: PT says no more Squats

The other advice has been good so far, my main addition is this.

Get with a really good CF trainer and make sure ALL of your squats are done with correct form, whether with a weight or without. There will be a pain-free ROM for your squat, however deep/shallow it is at this point, stay within that pain-free range. Expand that range as your pain decreases. Inducing pain will only set you back.

Realize that you have a long time of CFing and OLing ahead of you and seriously work on this issue now.

Too many PTs (and even more doctors) wouldn't know good squatting form at all, so beware of squatting advice from that group in general.

Best of luck. Don't mess around with this issue.
