I really want to be able to squat/leg press with no knee pain. I want to be able to train as hard as my mental fortitude will allow and not be limited by stupid pain. I saw an ortho about a year ago who couldn’t really tell me anything and an MRI was negative for anything torn. I took 6 months off training and knee pain was gone.
I’ve been foam rolling regularly and training hard for about 2.5 months now but knee pain is back. I think I need to see someone who can analyze my body type, my strengths and imbalances, correctly diagnose my knee pain, and teach me to perform squats and deadlifts with optimal form. (hopefully while being covered by my insurance)Basically I need Eric Cressey.
Any suggestions of how to find someone/facility that can do all this for me? Is there a title for such a person? I went to Foundry Sports Medicine in Providence where I saw the Ortho and he suggested PT, but I just didn’t feel like he “got it”.
Hell, I’ll look in to going to Cressey’s facility in Boston but I’m under the impression they cater to professional athletes. I live in the Providence/Boston area.
Any general suggestions? Thanks so much
