Saw my physio today. He loves the knee brace I bought, which is nice to know I got a deal. But in general, he's completely unconcerned about the knee. I really think it was a very minor injury and it feels really strong and stable now. I just have some quad soreness issues.
Something to note, he mentioned that he's dealing with/just got over dealing with an MCL injury of his own. So that makes me feel comfortable he's pretty in tune with the nature of the injury.
Having said all that, he really put me through the ringer with the core exercises today and my knee was pretty sore afterwards. But again, mostly lower quads. He said it's just the tiny stabilizer muscles overcompensating and to just make sure they recover between workouts.
One other thing of note: He turned me onto using a rolling pin to massage the legs. For the quads especially, it's much more comfortable than trying to use a foam roller. We have a big heavy duty one and it feels great. Definitely worth giving a try.
