Bryan:

I have had meniscus tears before so I knew exactly what it was when it happened. My best description was that it was a bit of a "crunch". I felt a pinch but it was not a great amount of pain, though I did fall on my a$$.

I noticed it right at the moment it happened. I lowered myself down, and I suppose I was a bit out of alignment, and then "crunch". The next thing you know, surgery.

Good luck to you. I hope your injury is not serious. If, however, you do need meniscus surgery, and you want to know what to expect, let me know. I have extensive experience in this area:crazy:

Thanks for the input Patrick. Hopefully it is not bad, but if so, you may hear from me!

patrick, that sounds possible...could this kind of instability be caused by a strength imbalance between vastus lateralis and vastus medialis?

David:

I'm not quite sure what you mean by, "that sounds possible". There is really no doubt that the tear occurred while doing pistols. I don't think that the incident had much to do with any strength imbalance. In my opinion it was just a matter of the imbalance that comes with the movement itself. I lost my balance a bit and, with one foot on the ground, I found myself collapsing with my knee at a strange angle. Voila...torn meniscus.

patrick:

sorry, i should have been clearer, i tend to make vague statements like that all the time:bangin:

what i meant was, it makes sense that instability is the cause of the knee pain.

sorry to hear about your injury. i don't have much trouble with the balance aspect...so i guess it's just some kind of shear force acting on my knee.
