I was asked to stand in a horse kiba dachi stance - a very exagarated horse riding stance - body weight is low with legs bent while body is upright. My instructor stupidly wanted to test the strength of my stance and pushed with his foot strongly from behind on my left knee. I guess my stance was stronger than my knee joint and there was a cracking/popping sound followed by my leg buckling. I was able to walk off the buckling leg but overnight it is now more sore. There isnt any obvious swelling or pain if I feel round the joint but it does cause some discomfort when I try to fully straighten. I'm not certain of the strength of my leg if I were to twist the leg. I am also unable to walk normally without hobbling. Please can anyone advise what I should do next. I kept the joint cold but would like comment if it is worthwhile visiting my GP etc. my head tells me that time will cure because I have stretched the ligaments but would love to hear some advise!
Thanks in advance!
