I tore my meniscus a few months ago and have been going to PT for the past few months to strengthen my quad and get the leg back in order.
I have started doing some body weight squats and other leg exersizes and got back to skating a little bit (i’m a hockey player). I just recently had my last follow up with my Orthapedist and he basically said that I dont need surgery.
Its never going to be perfect but that its not going to get worse and there is only a slight chance I can make damage it more by playing hockey or anthing.
My question is, had anyone ever had this injury and gone back to lifting and stuff without getting the surgery. As of now I cant squat past parallel and I havent tried adding bar weight yet, only doing one leg leg presses and BW squats.
Thanks for any help.
