i bent my leg backwards 5 years ago and the dr said i wouldnt be able to wrestle again, i tore my acl mcl and my knee cap was nearly none existant. i have 2 pins in my knee and an artificial knee cap. i've been wrestling again after a year of therapy and excercise and i still compete at the national lvl in greco roman. i can walk run jump and even practice parkour which i started just 8 months ago. and the dr said i couldnt do it. i proved them wrogn i think u can do the same. keep your hope alive man everything will work out just keep positive and make sure u do therapy it helps. dont over do it at therapy though u might hinder urself. have faith and hope and remember people can tell u ur whole life that u cant do things, its ur fault if u listen, and its a greater accomplish ment to prove them wrong :)

Farewell, my friend. At least you went out with something dignified, like an injury. Could be much worse. Best of luck with your next major hobby.
:) Peace.

Oh and by the way, has anyone recently designed any parkour compatible crutches?

Jack, do a search on Bing.com or Google.com for "regrow cartilage".  I was going to post links but there are many -- better to do the search yourself and pick the interesting ones.

One of the links spoke of removing knee cartilage, grinding it into a paste, and reapplying it within the knee where the articular surfaces had worn down to the bone.  The intent was to have the cartilage cells re-establish themselves there, and apparently it is effective.

I recall reading some time ago about a "culturing cartilege/meniscus outside the body" procedure by which some cells are externally replicated into a tissue of cells and re-implanted.

So, medical capabilities continue to advance -- and your Parkour career may not yet be toast.  Good luck on this.  Wishing you all the best.

This saddens me. I have pains in my right knee and it pops vigorously which is why I like to train even harder. Lots of stretching and exercise have helped tremendously. The only things I can think of that would help you out mentally are examples from one of the greatest persons of all time, bruce lee.

Bruce lee suffered from a pinched nerve in his spinal column when working out and the docs told him he might never walk again much less do martial arts. Through arduous training he proved them wrong by becoming an even better martial artist than what he was.

The mind can subjugate anything, even real pain. - bruce lee

I hope the best for you because the only other resort is to be happy with nothing. I do believe though that that is something we should all strive for.

I remember watching a show about a kid who couldn't use his legs ( I forgot why), but he never thought of being in a wheelchair as a bad thing. He went everyday to a skatepark, and he trained with other skaters in his wheelchair. He could do grinds and flips on his wheelchair.
    What I mean to say is, use this as an opportunity however you can, and never lose motivation.

Maybe not the same guy, but here is a video of a wheelchair skater: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWxl-PjxgRE
