How I fixed my meniscus injury (the knee).
Phase 1: Catastrophizing about my injury
Phase 2: Diagnosing my injury
- The clunking and locking
- The way I injured it: Deep squat with twisting movements
Phase 3: Analyzing what to do next
- Would I need surgery?
- How effective is physiotherapy, if I want to get back to my active lifestyle? s
Phase 4: Acute Pain Management
- Stop doing it
- Decrease the intensity (how hard you are doing it), OR
- Decrease the duration (how long you are doing it) of the exercise.
