Re: Knee Problems

I think i found out one reason my knee got tendonitis in the first place.
I think it was that i was squatting with my legs too far apart. So I tested my hypothesis and I did some air squats with my legs closer in (where i think they should be) and I felt no pain on the tendon and I did it the way ive been squatting before and i started to feel it a little bit.

I don't think I need to go to a doctor i basically diagnosed myself, found my mistakes and am going to fix them. I also changed the area at where I ice my tendon and the pain started to drastically go away, I feel so good now!

I'll be crossfitting in no time, I actually did the workout yesterday and felt no pain on my knee and ripped out a 400 lb deadlift with no knee pain.

Re: Knee Problems

My knees are feeling sooo much better...
I'm now working on front squat form, I've really tightened up a lot since this happened. I guess that icing and rest was the way to go, I'm stupid I can't believe I didn't do this before the off season lifting =\.

Thanks for all of the support to everyone who has posted on this thread!
I'm made a workout log to show everything that I'm doing.

I have a substantial horizontal tear to my lateral meniscus and the pain was extreme. I could not do crossfit anymore and had to stop all exercise. Was scheduled to have surgery but someone told me about prolotherapy and I will be having my 5th series of injections tomorrow. I am back to crossfit and doing very well. I used to have severe muscle spasms, had to wear a brace. The spasms are gone and the brace is also gone. I am a firm believer in prolotherapy. Its worth a try. Once you have had surgery to the meniscus even just for repair for a small tear the meniscus starts to deteriorate immediatley and eventually arthritis and maybe a knee replacement. Its sure worth a try.

Re: Knee Problems

Well spring football game is and has been over for like a week or so lol.

Knee is bothering me a little bit.. I haven't been squatting with weights, only letting my knee rest from strenuous lifting. I've been doing that R.I.C.E crap but without the elevation part lol. But I got a new idea.. What if i did eccentric squats not going low enough for it to hurt. I've been doing that and swimming (i don't know if swimming can be strenuous though.) and my knee has been feeling good. Are eccentric squats even good for tendinitis? Could I expect to heal quicker doing the eccentric squats?

Re: Knee Problems

Again - you can only heal when you
1) know what is exactly the problem and
2) have a good therapist with the appropriate rehab.
Nobody can be his own doctor, even if you are a doctor.

I recently found a website who seems to be a great source for all athletes with orthopedic problems. Physiotherapist Doug Kelsey from Austin Sports Center is experienced and passionate in helping people to be fit again.

You could send him an e mail.

Kelsey is highly recommended by an MD at POSE Forum who is a passionate runner (with bad knees).
I learned a lot reading Kelseys blog. What to do and what not to do with Knee problems .
