Had a basketball match, played the full game, knees were fine after the game. Overnight could not bend my knee, it was extremely painful. Over the next week the pain gradually died down. The pain was very deep and I could not pinpoint it. No swelling was present at all and this seemed very odd. Physio said probably a meniscus tear but the swelling situation was strange. Physio did all these flexion tests like rotating the knee while extending it etc... but I could never really feel much pain, only a slight uncomfortableness (this is one week after grand final game). Now I am 6 weeks into the injury, have been doing strengthening of the muscles around the knee so I can get back into basketball and can hardly feel pain anymore, but every now and then there is a dull ache (more uncomfortable than pain) when I bend my knee all the way. I had a really light basketball session tonight, I did not feel any pain, but I can't help wondering that if I do get fully back into training etc, my knee might get worse. I never fully trusted the physio's opinion about a meniscus tear, it just seems really strange. Thoughts?
