Title: Meniscus Tear: Update: I done gots it fixed.
Post by: Kyle Rudolph on March 16, 2011, 07:53:31 PM
Yo.

So I was at the gym yesterday and me and some guys were just warming up. About 25-30 minutes into the session I threw a 540 kick. Not a big deal I do them all the time and they are pretty much second nature to me. However, for some reason I locked my kicking leg out in mid air and landed on it and it hyperextended on me. I heard what sounded like a rip and it was very unstable.

I went to a doctor today (knee specialist) and got some X-Rays. He told me that I just sprained my MCL and that my leg still felt too stable to have torn my ACL. I still opted to go get an MRI and will be getting one here in a few days just in case.

However, I am freaking myself out and I'm super paranoid. My doctor said he didn't think my ACL was torn, my X-Rays look fine, and that I was worrying over nothing. But am I? I'm not doing anything for the week. Just resting, but if my ACL is torn, how bad do you think it could've been if it wasn't even noticed yet. And if I did rip out, how long is the recovery. What is the surgery like? I'm super worried at the moment and I don't want to quit tricking because of this. Please help me out guys. Thanks.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aw man, I hope you have a sprain like the Doctor said, not a tear.

As you said, rest is best for now.  Work handstands if you get restless.  Ibuprofen, eating lots or Omega 3 fatty acids, elevation, and ice may help with comfort and reduce the inflammation.

Also, try to take it one step at a time.  For now you don`t have an ACL tear, so don`t bother scheduling the surgery and lining up a good physical therapist for the post op.  All you gotta do is get to that MRI.  After that you can take the next step.

On the bright side, Mauricio Shogun Rua is defending his UFC title against Jon Jones this Saturday night... after having what was his third or fourth knee surgery last summer.  It is very possible to return to a high level of athletic performance after serious knee surgery.

An X-ray wouldn't reveal an ACL tear
Get the MRI and then you'll know
There are also tests doctors can do by putting their hands on you physically to see if anything is off down there

I hope that everything works out for you and that you don't have an ACL tear
If you do have one, don't be discouraged or give up hope
You can and will recover if you take care of yourself

I'll be 5 months post-op from ACL reconstruction/partial menisectomy on March 28th
I opted for the donor graft
I'm back to kettlebell workouts, squats, deadlifts, running, and jumping already with no discomfort at all for the most part
I was actually practicing pistols yesterday to try and get those back after not doing them for so long

General recovery time line is 4 months = light running, etc, 6 months = begin gradual return to sports, 6-12 months full return to sports/100% confidence, etc
But this is general - for somebody in great shape that took good care of themselves before injury, you may find yourself beating some of these checkpoints

Work very hard while also taking into account your doctor's advice and having some pragmatism about the kind of things you should be trying

After surgery you can expect to be on crutches for 4-6 weeks
You can expect to be in A LOT of pain for the first days
You'll want to start working on getting your range of motion back immediately and also make sure you can get your leg perfectly straight
Do what you can to exercise your leg once you feel able
I started hitting the weights a little over a month ago I think and I regained the muscle mass I lost very quickly once I got there

Good luck to you!

Generally, after an ACL tear your knee would be unstable all the time, and it would almost 95% swell up at least within the first few days.

Maybe you got a sprain or partial tear of something but it doesn't sound like ACL tear.

MRI will confirm though...

Biggest thing before surgery if it was an ACL tear is to strengthen and get as much ROM as possible. But we'll see once you get the MRI

I'm wishing you the best man. Just think positive, there are plenty of crazy painful injuries that aren't actually that serious. It could always be something like that
Title: Re: Blah might've torn my ACL...
Post by: Kyle Rudolph on March 17, 2011, 06:49:23 PM
Thanks guys. My doctor did some of those feel tests you were talking about and he said it felt stable.

Also, there was no swelling whatsoever. Like none. But I also started icing it and whatnot like 3 seconds after it happened.

I guess why I'm so worried is because ACL tears are the "common" sports injury and I'm assuming I would've torn it before I touched my MCL or anything else in my knee.

Thanks for the support guys. Hoping that all I did was sprain it and I'm out for like 2-3 weeks at the most. =]

EDIT:

I've got a super ultra hardcore brace on my leg at the moment. But I can walk around without the brace (be it a slow walk/limp thing) and my leg does not feel unstable really. Just in pain. It did however, give out once immediately after I hurt it. But it hasn't since.

Brett- Can't do handstand stuff either ATM. The leg I injured (my left leg) is the leg I use for the lever in my handstands. Unless you meant just doing handstand presses?

Two days in now and still no swelling. Hopefully it stays that way.

I KNOW YOUR PAIN! I've torn my ACL in my left leg. The whole next week and a half I couldn't lift my lower leg up higher than 90 degrees without it hurting immensely.
Trust me, you'll loose some flexibility in that leg after it heals. It will be noticeable for the rest of your life, by the way. Your knee will begin to get sore much quicker than before, so you can't pound it like you do your good knee. But you'll still be able to train.

WHEN I WENT TO SEE THE SCHOOL NURSE WHEN IT HAPPENED, SHE SAID I JUST BUMPED MY KNEE. I WENT TO THE DOCTOR THREE DAYS LATER, AND THEN HE SAID IT WAS TORN.
He also told me it can take up to four days for the knee to show signs of a torn ACL.

MRI is on the 23rd. Will have confirmation then.

But I can now walk on it fully and go at a normal stride. No more limp really. It hurts more in the morning and then gets better as the day progresses. It's still in a little pain and still a bit stiff, but 4 days in now and still no swelling and no instability. I still walk around with the brace on, but I will take it off from time to time and walk without it and it still doesn't feel unstable. It's just sore and stiff at this point really.

If the doctor says it's stable and your not swelling up you lucked out.
 And it is very possible to injure the other ligaments without touching the ACL. Take me for example: Playing soccer with my swim team I got hit. My leg was planted and extended because I was trying to switch directions to avoid getting hit.  I thought I was going to get up and walk it off. Except I couldn't move my leg. Flash forward to E-rays and MRI - I completely tore the I partially tore my LCL, mostly tore the MCL, and COMPLETELY tore the PCL. Oh, and my femur apparently acted as a pile driver and crushed my tibia. 6 months of healing and PT and the doctors decided it didn't heal right (considering my shin could shift back and forth from my knee a whole inch) and I had a surgery to repair the MCL and PLCL, and completely replaced my PCL.

TL/DR - It's possible to injure the other ligaments without touching the ACL. I'm a walking proof  :)

Post by: Kyle Rudolph on March 19, 2011, 09:02:43 PM
I messaged one of my friends who is an athletic trainer at my college about this and he said this:


"If you hyperextended your knee, your ACL would be fine, you would have sprained your PCL. 540s are definitely able to mess with the MCL if you land them with the leg facing backwards like a shitty one.
Don't worry, PCL injuries aren't too dangerous when not serious. I've hyperextended with front flips and sprained them twice, but nothing bad came out of it in the end. I thought it was a bruise on the bone (i was stupid back then) so I didn't bother asking to get it checked out. They heal by themselves if not too serious. You might be able to hyperextend a little more than you used to, but not by much. Obviously don't try to stretch your knee by hyperextension. Bending it is fine, just keep icing it and trying to bend it to get back the range of motion. Put the ice on the back and inside of your knee, it'll help more than if you put it on the front. Swelling is uncommon for minor PCL injuries because it's deep within the joint, any swelling (the inside of your joint is swollen, that's why it's stiff) won't really show up. Keep it moving, it'll get better faster with that.
Good on you for wearing the brace.

You know my creds bro. I'm a student athletic trainer and have torn my ACL before, so I can tell you that this is definitely not an ACL problem. No need to worry! I'm not an expert on meniscal injuries, but I highly doubt you damaged one if your knee didn't bend when you landed."

I am very relieved at the moment. =]

That's absolutely incorrect.

The ACL goes from the relative "back" of the femur to the "front" of the tibia and thus prevents anterior translation of the tibia relative to the femur.

When you hyperextend the knee, the tibia is moving anteriorly relative to the femur and thus the ACL is the primary ligament that is going to be stressed at the end range of motion.

Like I said, it's probably not an ACL problem due to the lack of instability and swelling, but his rationale is incorrect and if you hyperextended even about a centimeter more after your knee hits end range of motion the ACL will likely tear.

This is not true at all. It really depends on the person and how much rehab they're doing. I'm almost 5 months from ACL surgery, I have complete ROM, am squatting and running regularly, and was able to get my thigh to my calf muscle within 2 weeks of the surgery. Not only have I not lost flexibility, but my commitment to regaining it has given me the opportunity to improve it over where it was before I got hurt.

As for getting sore... well I'm not that far ahead yet. I haven't had much at all but I also haven't gotten back to Parkour yet. After squats and running I've been fine.

Torn meniscus (needs small surgery), sprained MCL, and a compression fractured tibia. Guess who is out for 1-2 months? This guy.

My doctor came into my room and the first words he said were, "Man, you're really hard to kill." Apparently my ACL should've snapped instantly with the angle I hit it at, but it didn't even faze it.

Really was hoping to avoid surgery all together and depending when I get it, this might actually cost me my internship so I dunno how to feel at the moment. :/

I guess I'm just pissed that it's all this damage over a stupid 540 Kick. It's not even a hard move, I can literally almost do them in my sleep.

Post by: Kyle Rudolph on April 03, 2011, 11:42:17 AM
So 2nd quick question. Due to the tibia fracture my doctor has me on crutches for a month. He does not want me putting any weight on the leg whatsoever. Since I've been on the crutches, at no point has my leg had full body weight on it, but every now and then, especially if I have to get on a bus or carry something, I will have to put a little weight on it and walk with one crutch. I know the doctor said no weight, and I really truly am trying my hardest to avoid putting weight on it, but is it expected to have to put a little weight on it every now and then? And how long do bone fractures usually take to heal up? I'm so tired of these crutches already....

Also, there is bruising on my calf and heel that I just recently noticed and my calf is in some pain at the moment. It kicks in whenever I try and flatfoot my injured leg, which I don't do because I don't really put weight on the leg, but I did it once to try and find when the pain kicked in. Going to see a sports doctor at Tulane tomorrow, he's the same knee doctor the New Orleans Saint's use so hopefully I'll be able to get an update here. But could you guys throw out any ideas to what I might've done to my calf that just recently showed up? My calves are super strong (1000+ lb calf raises and 345 lb. squat for 5 reps) so I didn't even think I could ever hurt them.

1. Yes, no weight bearing means no weight bearing... it PROBABLY won't hurt if you put a bit of weight on it but do you really want to be out for more months because something didn't heal right?

Listen to your doc.

2. Calf/heel bruising can have lots of reasons.... may or may not be related to your current injury. Not enough information to tell

Yo,

Had surgery yesterday. Meniscus tear was small and able to be easily fixed. I was in and out of surgery in 30 minutes. My tibia is healed and my MCL has healed as well. I have my follow up appointment on April 25th, but as I lie here awake in bed I've been thinking and I wanted to know your opinion Steven.

Assuming I am careful and reintroduce myself very slowly into tricking and weight lifting again (after I am cleared to do so of course by my doctor) what are the chances of reinjury? Cause like I said, I got this injury doing a pretty simple trick (540 kick) and it's such a staple in my tricking that I can't just stop doing them, but now I'm like super paranoid about reinjuring it when I start training again. Hell, I've been looking at my technique for some other tricks that I can do with my eyes closed (Front Handsprings, Back Tucks, Butterfly Twists, etc) and now when I look at my tricks all I can see is where I could slip and hyperextend my leg again. I think I'm scaring the crap out of myself for no reason. So do you have any opinions?

I'm actually scared to go back to the gym where I injured myself in the first place, because my only injuries I've ever had doing PK and Tricking (Sprained Ankle and this). Happened in that gym, which brings me to another questions. Why can I throw all the tricks I just listed on grass with no problem, and even bail higher level stuff on grass and seem to walk away with no problem, but I do this stuff in a gym and suddenly it's injury city? I'm approaching each trick with the same mindset regardless of terrain. -_-
Title: Re: Meniscus Tear: Update: I done gots it fixed.
Post by: Steve Low on April 19, 2011, 08:34:40 AM
First thing is first.....

1. Listen to your PT about rehab if you are going to PT

2. If not, strengthen the heck out of the knee first with some isolation work then working back into squats, and make sure you stretch/mobilize so you don't loose any range of motion

3. As for tricking would not do any until your squats and deads are pretty strong again.

If you are going to do something I would work just non-twisting moves into a pit.... when you are going to start working twisting moves again do them into the pit first to get the feel of the landings and all that stuff... then take them to mat(s) on the floor

Do a lot of balance work may be beneficial as well.


Don't miscontrue any of this as diagnosis or physical therapy advice b/c it's internet etc.

Yeah, sometimes people get hurt more in the gym. I'm one of those people. I get careless though... so.... if that's not you I don't know what to say

Alright man. That sounds good. I won't start tricking again until I finish my cut to 180 at least and go through rehab and get my lifts back again. Thanks for the ideas.

Do you know Travis Wong?  He had a really bad meniscus tear in 2009.  He's also super damn friendly.  I bet if you email him or FB or twitter him, he might have some advice about things.  I'd personally trust Steven's medical advice more than anyone's, but Travis might have some great tips on the mental side of things, and progressions he used to get back into tricking and freerunning.

I can walk again, don't need crutches. No pain simply from just walking. Doing weighted ROM exercises now. No pain until the lock out point. There's a little at there but apart from that I have full ROM back. I can also squat again. I did a bunch of BW squats awhile ago then with doctor's permission I did bar and now 135. Super fast recovery ftw.
