I have just been diagnosed with atella femoral syndrome, likly a result of getting back into squatting after a 6 year lay off. i have made great gains in the last 2 months going from reps with 135- 5x225. The doc told me just dont squat. I can understand this being rational for some time, but what about starting out with say 30 degree squats, maybe some front squats once tha pain is gone? does anybody have any good advice about how to get back into squatting once the pain is gone?
Also anyone know if front squats may be a better option when i return than back squats? as far as rehab exercises he gave me none and said the problem is just from squatting and the cartilage rubbing the bone causes the pain, no real tracking problem. Id appreciate any advice from people that have had this problem also.
