This is going to sound pretty lame but I partially tore my ACL and PCL playing flag football about a month ago. My teammate and I didn’t see each other while we were going for the same guy. I wound up getting my foot trapped underneath his body and his shoulder got rammed to the inside of my knee. It hurt for a little bit but I got up and managed to get off of the field.
A few minutes later my knee felt okay so I went back onto the field and finished playing the last two minutes of the game.
The next day my knee was a little sore but it wasn’t that bad. Two days later I had my level two test for my Muay Thai class. I did the test as well as I could and I passed. If I’d known the extent of my injuries I never would have done the test but I just thought it was a muscle bruise.
Anyhow my athletic trainer seems to think that the ACL and PCL are slightly torn based off of what she felt when she was examining my knee. She advised me to start back into my lifting routine again. I need to do 1/2 squats and deadlifts.
Can anyone think of any other exercises I need to do beyond these two? I need to strengthen my leg until I’m able to have my knee taken care of.
