I am a division 1 soccer player. A little over a month ago I injured my knee during a game. my leg was in the air and I took a blow from the outside pushing my knee inwards slightly. I was able to continue playing for a short time but had to come off as it felt weak. There was no immediate swelling. The next day felt stiff with some swelling but nothing major. I did some rehab and trained on it which all felt ok then tried to play the next game. Played for a good 30 minutes, then I went to turn and knee gave out slightly. was able to walk off as I didn't want to further injure it. I then gave it a week off until playoffs. at the playoffs I played in the game for 75 minutes. I went to push off my injured leg and it gave out and I felt a slight pop/crack so I came off. it wasn't associated with pain but knew this shouldn't happen. the next morning it was slightly swollen again and stiff but I was able to bear all my weight and walk. Now this was a little over 3 weeks to a month ago and I am still experiencing some pain. it is still slightly swollen and feels a bit weak if I would try to play on it. I am on a strengthening program for quads/hammys and have full range of motion. occasionaly (once or twice) my knee has locked up when I pull it back to far lying down. then after a second or two a feel a deep crack and it feels normal again. Thoughts? first ortho said it was ok and now needs some rest. I have about a little over 2 months until I have to play again. Seeing another ortho in 2 weeks.
