My knees have been bothering me off and on for about a year now. So I finally went to see a ortho about the pain(its not chronic, but annoying and my loads for squating have dropped). After telling him about the pain he watches me walk and has me do a few stretchs and say he can see nothing wrong. Total appoiontment time 15 minutes max and he doesn’t even watch me squat which might be the primary cause of the pain. He also says my outer thighs maybe overdeveloped for my knees and inner quads.
HE wants me to squat to a 45 degree angle max. His theory is that the quad would still grow without putting pressure on the knees. However wouldn’t that just cause my knees to not strenghten furthering the quad imbalance.
Second he suggested a brace to support the knee and take pressure off of it. I argue for my above point once again.
SO sould I get a second opinon and if soon what should I look fot in a doctor and how.
