Thought I’d posted this a couple of hours ago but can’t find it. Sorry if repeating. My knee injury was MCL sprain (medial collateral ligament). Luckily not a tear but still Couldn’t weight beat at all. Minor injuries unit excellent, adjusted crutches, tubigrip, advice. RICE etc. Now day 5 and I’d like to know when to try again. Don’t want to wait 6 weeks! Much better, short walks (with crutches). When there’s no pain can I try again or should I leave it a few weeks? Really don’t want to go back to W1! 65 so might be slower to heal.

Please don’t rush it & take the advice given. Although l didn’t have an MCL injury, l did have an ACL injury. Like you, not a tear. I saw a sport therapist & was out for a couple of months. When l resumed running (a shuffle really) l went back to week 7. For me, my thoughts were if l push it & not heed the advice l was given, l could further injure myself & be out for even longer. The choice is yours really. Whatever you decide, take care👍🏻
