Sorry to interject a smaller knee problem here but thought and think you guys may know the answer. Couple weeks ago stretched the outside ligaments on my R knee. Did this (dumb) while taking a lesson from a Level III friend and we were practing angulating the skis up. Am 69 and my ligaments should not have gone that far over. Anyway have some R knee pain, went to local Ortho and he confirmed I stretched the ligaments. Advice stay off for a few days.
Re-tweaked yesterday in real heavy wet snow. Alternating heat and cold, taking Ibu. Really don't want this all year, so asking anyone have some advice or do I just put up with the pain and ski.
Never had any knee problem before skiing. Had same knee scoped and cartilege cleaned out about 14 yrs ago by a "Dr. Browning in tahoe city- blew up cart. race training on my bicycle.
Any advice appreciated. thanks Pete
My advice for what it is worth, Spend the next two weeks biking and icing. If you keep tweaking it you may up with something worse or tendinitis, so a couple of weeks off not skiing should take care of it. But don't just do nothing, riding a bike will speed up the healing process and keep your legs strong.
