"...by direct pressure rather than any kind of movement."
It's never squats (despite the fact that my form isn't flawless when I'm tired) or running, it's
the takedown drills. That's the common denominator.
I've got to be diligent with the following:
3) Stretching before AND after

I've got very good running shoes, but I think that me wearing those stupid shoes for months may have caused some problems. I complained about this to my chiro and he told me to drop the shoes and pay the $125.00 for "real" orthodics.
I literally just got rid of the shoes 2 days ago.
Thanks for this...I'm calling my chiro to get the number for the orthopedic guy now.

The thing is that guys on this form have a lot of practical experience in what I'm doing so I'd be curious to see if I'm experiencing the same thing.

I didn't mean to be a prick, it's just that you don't want to trifle with your knees, and start second guessing your doctors. I will say one thing- according to my brother in law (whose had knee surgery), he got a lot more help from an athletically oriented PT than his old doctor. Still, they all saw him in person. Good luck.

In short, if my feet are screwed up, everything else will follow. The offending shoes have been given to charity and I'm going to make an appointment with the ortho ASAP.
I have medical, it's just that my schedule is nuts and I want to make sure that I'm going to the doc for the right reasons. The foot thing I should have addressed earlier, especially considering it's never happened before.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Hey HongKongFukYu. By all means follow your doctor's advice. But I wonder, you feel no pain when you squat.....Do you ever do lunges in the gym and did they hurt? Is the takedown movement similar in nature to what would describe as a lunge in the gym?

What the cock are you on about son? Are all your posts complete garbage or just the last 2 I've had the misfortune to reply to?
Edit: after a quick check, it transpires that all your posts are, in fact, garbage. Sorry to have bothered you.
