Thought pain in side of knee after soccer was something bad like an MCL sprain, turnsout it was just patelleofemoral syndrome caused by a buildup of scar tissue in my knee. Sports chiropractor used a big piece of dull metal to scrape the fuck out of my quad and told me to foam roll + stretch my quad before soccer.
Got that sick achy post-massage feeling last night. feels shit man
This pretty much sounds like what I've got atm.
Can you describe the knee pain more in detail? How exactly did it feel?
Like a distant ache-y kinda pain somewhere on the side of the knee, or a sharp and direct localized-to-a-very-narrow-area kind of pain? Did it hurt more when you bent the knee or squatted down to around parallel depth?
Currently on NSAIDs and haven't been able to squat for almost a week. Just want it to go away so I can continue to train for the meet in Nov.
