    Default Keep getting injured.

    I was moving some furniture and tweaked my right quad tendon. It wasn't an acute injury, but sometime the next day, I felt pain right above the patella, right where I had a partial tear in my left quad tendon. I suspect it was some kind of tearing, but the pain went away and there wasn't significant swelling, so I don't think I need to do anything about. And a doctor I saw completely agreed.

    And if I try squatting I hurt my back, or my knees feel off. I don't know what to do. I've sought help from Dr's and PT's but they tell me everything is fine. If that were true, I wouldn't have these problems. I can't make progress because no matter what I do I get injured, so obviously something is wrong, but I can't get anyone to help.

    I recall that you had probs with your knees. All these injuries knees, back, quad are piling up on you. I don't think asking questions on the forum about all these injuries is going to fix them. How old are you btw? I am going on 60 so I might relate. How long have you been strength training? Have you a long history of exercise related injury? I believe you live in the U.S or the perhaps the U.K - not Bum-Fuq Egypt - so there has to be some competent doctor around that at least can properly diagonose all this. It could be pyschological or nerve related. But I am just a guy on the forum who is just guessing. I might suggest you stop all strength training activity and just do mobility drills (SUPER JOINTS etc..) for a year or so. Swim or run. If that does not hurt. Find a sports doc and a movement specialist. The forum is great for sharing info and experiences, but lousy for specific medical advise...Dennis

    I'm 31. Doc said he's NEVER seen a partial quad tear. And it's basically unheard of for someone my age. He referred me to another, who referred me to a physiatrist. It's been a week and a half and they haven't sent over the referral paperwork yet, and when I called, after being told I would be called, I was informed the physiatrist doesn't have an opening for 3 MONTHS. What a joke.

    Something is really messed up.

    Maybe there are competent people. But how to find them is a complete mystery. But in well over a dozen doctors and PT's each I haven't come across one that is both competent and takes what I say seriously.

    I tried Super Joints, but that was a long time ago, and I don't think I got anything out of it. I'll never buy another Pavel book. It's all fluff. HUGE and EXTREMELY expensive white spaces. Half of the pages are advertisements for other similarly overpriced "books."

    How close is he? http://www.dragondoor.com/michael-kurkowski/ I would visit with him and have an FMS performed.

    Hi,
    Youcan ask for second opinion, there is no harm about it. And be sure to telleverything about your concern. In addition, take a rest and do not do thingsthat may aggravate the pain.

    I saw a doctor. Physiatrist. He basically said it was hopeless, but gave me a prescription for PT for what reason I don't know.

    Can't anyone actually TRY to get to the bottom of this?

    I'm hesitant to contact the FMS people and see who they deal with, because I'm almost certain it's just going to be another doctor who won't try to help.

    I sense your frustration and if I could I would help you. It is not hopeless. Many others have recovered from catastrophic injuries and were judged to be hopeless - but they did not believe that and they recovered - some far beyond what was thought to be possible. Attitude, attitude, attitude!!..You are not "done" until you are dead and buried. Try doing light body weight training progressions like CC for damage repair and to build up your confidense. I believe your confidense as well as your body have taken a beating. Start with a completely clean slate. Forget about your training in the past. Ditch the weights for now. You need to rebuild and renew yourself in a way that has you getting stronger without injury. Your training sessions should be easy and short for now. Don't push hard. Explore where your limits are. ..Dennis
