So, in Feb., I got my knee smashed between my motorcycle and a Mercury Sable. Cracked my tibia right at the top of it (no surgery, thank God), and apparently messed up the cartilage behind my patella. I’m in therapy for it, but it’s not really helping much.
Here’s the thing: They told me that I could lift as long as I didn’t go past 90 degrees. So yesterday, I did some deadlifts with 95, just to see how it would feel. Two sets, and I’m done.
I then proceeded to walk back up the stairs with NO PAIN whatsoever! I had to walk back down and back up again to make sure I wasn’t imagining it. I even did some unweighted squats to see what my mobility was like. (not perfect, but a lot better)
This morning, my knee is hurting me again. No worse, but no better. Anyone have any idea what the hell is going on with this?
