    TaiBoMaster HELP! Knee Problems

    For the last two months I have been unable to train MA of any kind or even run. Instead, I have been doing ***** ass swimming and lifting weights.

    My injury occurred in my Sambo class. We were doing the throw where you get a side body lock on someone (think chests perdendicular to each other), then sit down and kick out the other person's legs by sweeping forward. Anyway, this N00b somehow kicked me in the back of the knee doing it. His leg stayed there and my knee wrapped around his leg. Sorta like a bicep sliper, but on my knee. My foot caught on the mat and my knee completely closed.

    It popped and everyone heard it. Needless to say, it hurt like a bitch.

    So this was at the beginning of November and I still can't close my knee all the way. Sometimes it hurts when climbing stairs and sometimes it just randomly hurts. It is still somewhat swollen. The doctor thought it might be the miniscus at first, so they did an MRI. It turns out the capsule is broken and no surgery will do anything. They told me to just rest.

    Any advice would be appreciated, and I would even stop doing Shooto. But please don't take away my BJJ . . . .

    I am scared.

    Love,
    MrMcFu

    If you don't mind me asking:
    Does it hurt when you do the ground work in BJJ ?
    How long did the doctor say it woul dtake to heal ?
    Does it hurt or swell up when you swim?
    What did the doc say about rehab?
    Are you doing any type of strength training for your knee (legs) ?

    Sure -

    It hurts when I pull my heel towards my butt or put more than normal weight on it. Not searing pain like a few weeks ago, but enough to twinge. I haven't been brave enough to attempt BJJ ground work.

    The Dr. said it would take about six weeks. It has been over 8 now.

    Swimming is okay - no additional swelling.

    Doc said swimming was okay, but that was it.

    No strength training on lower body. Too scared.

    Was the doctor a specialist or just a "family doctor" ?
    Most knee injuries take a lot longer than 8 weeks to "heal".
    What about rehab/physiotherapy ?

    He was a something like joint trauma specialist. They didn't tell me anything specific to do, I just don't want to have to quit anything.

    get some PT in conjunction with acupuncture. together they work much better then by themselves...which is why i might go to PT school now.

    if that isn't possible, at least see a specialist that deals with sports injuries.

    This is definitely outside of my expertise. I'd definitely recommend an orthopedic surgeon and a physical therapist.

    I'd stay off of that as much as possible. I have a ruptured capsule in my ankle right now, and I'm at 6 weeks. It sucks, but it'll take even longer to heal if you keep aggravating it.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I did some heavy (for me anyway - I'm no DJimbe1100pounddeadlifter) weights yesterday and it is holding up well.
