  • Knee Injury

    Hey Docs. I’m writing because last night while playing basketball I tweaked my knee. After landing from a rebound, my ankle rolled out slightly followed by knee. There was no Immediate swelling or bruising and I had minimal discomfort walking afterwards.

    This morning is different. I am experiencing a lot of disability and moderate pain. It feels very unstable and my range of motion is restricted, like I can’t extend my leg fully and I can’t bring my heel to my butt.

    I'm open to answering any question you may have. I meet the PAGA guidelines and consistently have for 10 years. I’m wondering y’all’s thoughts and suggestions, I’d really appreciate it!

    I don’t like the thought, but I noticed thinking about surgery. My thoughts are to find a range of motion I can work and then add resistance, but I am no expert.

    Thank y’all,

    Update. Yesterday I was able to loosen up enough and completed 10x3 sets @6 of leg press and single leg step ups. This morning I’m experiencing more range of motion and more stability compared to yesterday morning.

      Nice work. Sorry for the delay here, but sometimes a bit of time is all these things need to improve. Hope things have continued since your last post!

        Hey Dr. Baraki,
        Thanks for responding. It's continued to improve. I mostly struggling now when I extend my leg straight (think flexing quad). When doing this I feel a good amount of pain. I'm not ready to get back to rec basketball but I'm hopeful.
