Around the beginning of November I tackled my mate at Rugby training (was his first session so thought Id get him good), but due to torential rain my foot dug into the ground, which meant as I swung my mate round my leg stayed put and my knee got the brunt of the force.... A loud crack came from my knee and I thought the worst had happened. Anyway, I had to be carried off the pitch. My own fault anyway. For 2 weeks I couldnt straighten the leg affected. Saw a physio and he reckoned it could be medial meniscus (cartilege caught in joint). Another two weeks after doing the leg straightening exercises I managed to straighten my leg out again, therefore it was just a medial lateral injury. Anyway, Ive seen the physio over periods of time, done rehab and strength training to get it strong again. I can now run and do other things, even snowboarding. I do wish to get back into the rugby before the season ends but the medial lateral ligament is still sore after 3 months since the injury. The pain doesnt affect movement or anything like that. I am just concerned that if I go back to the rugby, there is potential that I could make it worse as a twisting action causes a little pain still. I even started going to Body Attack classes (no i dont go cause of the chicks...well maybe ;op) so my knee could get used to the twisting and turning movements again. I can't think of anything else that will help the pain finally go away. Maybe its one of these things that time. Thanks for any advice.
