    I think a lot of the anti-leg lock propaganda centers around the very wrong impression that its some sort of "short cut" to BJJ by trying to bypass all that guard stuff.

    If you have the money go get it checked. You'd be surprised at what you can do after a knee injury or partial tear. Yes, even walk, kick and stretch. Yes, speaking from self and anecdotal experience.

    From your posts, I get the impression you're getting some hypochondria going. If you can do everything you usually do without pain, you're probably just fine. If it's off or stiff for weeks on end, maybe something is wrong.

    BJJ tends to have this phobia about lower body submissions that isn't fully grounded in fact. In my amateur organizational psychological assessment, it's a lot of residual butt hurt from when Fadda's school won a challenge with the Gracies. They used a lot of footlocks, but those are you know cheap and low class techniques so it totally didn't count.

    I've had my knee popped to a heel hook. I tought the guy had a straight ankle lock and boom, popped. Hurt for a few days, but ultimately I was more or less ok. Is there some damage to the joint as a result? Probably, but not enough that it's bothering me over 5 years later. It's a contact sport and it will take a toll on your body. It comes with the territory.

    Hypochondria? Probably. I used to have really bad OCD (much better now though) but stuff like this can still get me going once in a while.

    Damn it made a popping noise or did it actually popped out of the socket?

    I know it's a contact sport. I get elbowed and kicked all the time. I just wanted some peoples' opinions and to kind of gauge if it was serious or not.

    I hope so.

    The general consensus seems to be "Your probably o.k." with the exception of It Is Fake's "Go see a doctor."

    I might wait until I normally get a check up and then bring it up.

    There are a few orthopedic tests you can have a PT do, to rule out torn ligaments etc., but pain and tissue damage aren't related to each other as much as we'd like to think.
    See a doc if you're simply worried, have lasing pain or any unusual instability.

    I tend towards not getting imagery myself, and trying conservative rehab first so long as one can tolerate it.

    Meaning that something can hurt and not be damaged or not hurt and be damaged? Or that something can not hurt a lot but be really messed up tissue wise?

    Yes, yes, and that last one is also a yes, but a bit less likely.
    Think Forrest Gump getting shot for the last one, or phantom limb pain for the opposite.

    It sounds like you've "catostrophized" knee injuries via submissions.
    You'd be more likely to experience pain and dysfunction if that's so.

    Tissue injuries matter, but they are not directly equivalent to pain.

    When it comes to tissue injuries how often do they require outside intervention to heal properly?

    Too broad of a question, are you talking GSW or a twisted knee?
    Car wreck?
    Pulpified tissue via ordinance?
    Flamethrower burns?

    Essentially, the body heals itself, but trauma can certainly kill too.
