Hey all, So, earlier this year during the season I twisted my knee pretty bad. Spent the rest of the game in the dugout with an icepack. Seemed to heal over the week until the next game, only to find halfway through the second half that the pain was firing up again. After deciding that it was more than just a sprained knee or pulled muscle I went to the Physio, who, after prescribing about a month’s worth of exercises (during which I did not play again to prevent permanent injury) told me to get an MRI. Turns out it was patellar tendonitis – a small tear that did not warrant surgery, but enough to make me think twice about suffering the hard leg impact of sprinting down a field. I was absolutely gutted. It’s been a fair while of leg exercises but even now I can still feel it – if I sit a certain way even jog for a short period of time. The GP who looked at my MRI results told me it was small and insignificant – “it would heal in a few weeks”. Felt like throwing him across the room. Is there any hockey-related input I could take on board – anyone else suffering this? How long did it take you to heal? DID you ever heal? Are there any special exercises that are tailor-made for the common Winger?
