/ Partially ruptured quadricep tendon - advice please
My problem is, that in my amazement that he knew what was wrong within the first 2 minutes of the examination, I forgot to ask what exercise I should or shouldn't be doing, in case I make it worse. I've tried Dr Google, but no joy there, so thought I'd ask here in case anyone has experienced this issue before.
I've continued to bike, climb and run, but back off when it gets too painful and make sure that if its hurting to walk, I try to rest it when possible. The pain is just under
The knee cap towards to top of the knee when my leg is bending, or if I extend the leg.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Try a search on www.theisrm.com directory. The Institue of Sport and Remdial Massage produces some great quality therapists.
Thank you riddle. Much appreciated.
Have just emailed you a contact based in Birmigham.
sports physio all the way.
Sounds like you need some rehab on that.
Depending on the initial tissue damage you will have had some scar tissue and muscle shortening building up which will make it likely to happen again.
I'm surprised the consultant didn't refer you for physio.
