My right knee hurts on the outside. I think it might be something to do with my lateral collateral ligament, but i can’t recall any significant blow to the knee to cause this. It had been feeling a little off, meaning it felt a little bit vulnerable when moving side to side, but I didn’t think much of it until yesterday.
The day before I did front squats, and the next morning my knee were really stiff, and felt a lot weaker when doing anything. I could still squat to parallel probably, but going deep is not possible, because my range of motion won’t allow it - it feels like there’s a big bubble on the side and across the meniscus that needs to be busted when i squat down in this position.
Knee also feels tender to palpation right below patella and to the right on the outside on that bony prominence of the knee joint.
Any docs, physios, or others who know what they’re talking about have any idea what the problem may be? If so should I be resting it or stretching and exercising as much as possible.
