I injured my knee about a month ago doing sumo pulls. I have this sharp pain right under the top part of the left knee cap. I’ve had my coach look at it and a chiropractor at a sports physical therapy clinic look at it and they told me that I sprained my LCL because of the extreme tension on that ligament doing sumo pulls for the first time.
I was told that a doctor would have to look at my knee with an MRI to see for sure what was wrong.
At first, I did have pain on the outside of my portion of my knee but that has all gone away. Now I am just left with a sharp pain under the knee cap whenever I try to squat or bench. Whenever I put weight on that leg to get out of a car or to even get out of a fucking chair. Ice will dull the pain temporarily but isn’t helping the recovery process.
This is getting really frustrating because I just got into the sport of powerlifting and I was progressing really well.
Has anybody else on the board had a similiar injury that could share their insight?
Thanks for the help
