I was training jj four weeks ago and there was no pop or anything specific that caused it. Just tried to stand up after training and couldn’t straighten my leg. Flexion or twisting DOES NOT hurt however. I first though I just had to “crack” the knuckle.
Week later I thought I could train again. Couldn’t straighten again.
Rest three weeks and my knee was feeling good again. Trained. Can’t straighten AGAIN.
have an appointment with PT but due to corona it’s video chat. My goal is imaging (MRI) but the doc won’t refer to ortho until I do pt. It hurts on the medial side. It hurts initially to straighten but after a few weeks that pain goes away and then it hurts specifically on the medial side. The butterfly stretch position specifically.
Am I wasting my time with pt? Is surgery the only way? This is the really the first time I am having knee problems so this is new territory for me.
