    I've damaged the ligament on my knee, the one which is on the inside of my knee. Not badly but it's sore and it's prevented my return to MMA training which for the last 3 months I've been running and doing some weights for to try and get back into shappe.

    It's been around 10 days now and it still pulls abit at certain angles.

    Can anyone offer me some advice on how i should go about getting it back to normal? I want to start my training again ASAP bit it's preventing me.

    Has trhis ever happend to anyone else?

    Thanks guys and gals, this sux.

    Yep, I tore an ACL & MCL. Continuing to work your knee while injured will just further your progress and cause further damage. Go see a PHD.

    i currently have a torn lateral and medial meniscus that will require surgery, ive been working out on it for 4 months, i would limit the amount of weight you do on it, and def not squats. i would defenitely recommend getting an MRI to see what you did.

    Lots of close chain exercises. Basically exercises where foot is fixed. Examples would be lunges, squats, Romainian dead lifts, dead lifts, etc.. Stay away from open chain, which would be leg extensions, leg curls, anything where your feet aren't fixed. Also some balance exercises would help.
     
  7. I'm recovering from a torn LCL 3 months ago. It's going to take a lot of time and rest. Get a brace and wear it so that it can heal properly. You're going to have to stop MMA and leg workouts until it's better.
