I torn my meniscus in the gym today!! I was doing deadlifts and felt a tear in the medial part of my knee. My form was perfect and I was not doing a big weight or anything. Happened on the other side a few years ago. It Hurts a lot! It's annoying because it really limits the kind of training I can do.
Luckily I work at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital so I am able to get a specialist knee surgeon to examine me and order an MRI quite easily. I also need to get a physiotherapist/research some programmes out there as I need a tailored gym regimen so I can continue training without causing further damage.
Just realised how lucky I am to have such great care so quickly. I genuinely feel that everyone should have instant access to the RIGHT care for their needs and I hope we can start doing that for people in this community!
I will keep you updated on the outcome of my scan -- CUDOS to you all!
