Long-term knee injury affecting training?
Hey guys, long time no post,
I can't imagine I'm the first person to experience this issue, so hopefully I can get some general advice here.
I've recently dislocated my patella for the third time in a year, and have been given the 'nothing we can do in the long-term' advice by physiotherapists and orthopaedic surgeons.
Now I'm not looking for medical advice, but some advice on which direction to take my martial arts training would be greatly appreciated.
FWIW, I managed my first injury in Judo, which I then stopped for the year, as this was my first and major injury. Following on it's been a couple of general sporting accidents, with about 2 week recovery time.
Apart from the athletic brace my old gym recommended, as well as kneehab, would anyone have any advice in terms of perhaps a different MA to give consideration to, especially since I was looking forward to beginning a striking art.
Off the top of my head, I consider BJJ and boxing to be more considerate to my knee.
Thanks very much, I would really appreciate some help.
