    Howdy Folks.

    I will try make this as detailed as possible. A week and a half ago I had this match where I jumped in a rebound, these guys were hard so we had to push ourselves even harder. My legs are naturally strong so I never thought I'd be in trouble with them. When I jumped to take the ball, I had reached my highest jump but it was messy, when I landed it was with just one foot with all my weight on it and not even the best landing one foot positioning . A weird sound when I landed happend, I thought I had broken something, my left leg was in so much pain, it felt as if I smashed my kneecap with my femur and tibia, I barely could move my leg there, but it got better as we kept playing, I still couldn't jump for around 10 minutes.
    Its been a week and half from that moment, I can move just fine but time to time when I bent my knees or make pressure over the one I injured it hurts a bit, its a little uncomfortable. I really don't think I need to see a doctor for this, if it was serious I wouldn't be able to run or jump or even lift.
    My question is, can I keep doing leg weight trainning?
    I did it yesterday and it just hurt afterwards a little bit until I cooled of.
    Should I do something regarding my knee?
    Thanks again and sorry for the big text. icon_smile.gif

    Lay off the weight training until you're checked out by a doc...It might be a tear.

    Here's your question: Should I do something regarding my knee?

    Answer: Go see a doctor! And while you're at it, google scar tissue in the knees. If you're still convinced that you don't need a doctor after experiencing a lot of pain, then good luck to you!
