Development Without Full Squat

Sorry…I mentioned at the beginning my PT told me not to squat down to parallel ever. I have been seeing docs. He wanted to try PT before taking an MRI, but I’m hoping he’ll order one this wed when I see him again…

This is probably why your knees hurt.

Assuming your insurance covers it, I would demand he schedule an MRI. There really is no way to properly diagnose (and treat) a muscle tear or other orthopedic injury without the photos. Anything less is just guesswork on the part of the doctors.
