What is a "release of injury?"
« on: May 22, 2017, 03:45:14 AM »
I was discussing my knee pain with someone else and they said

"The pop was the actual release of the injury and not the injury itself. Depending on the type of meniscal tear (there are several) you could have gone on with minimal discomfort for years. Cartilage tears are weird injuries."

I have no clue what this means. What injury was being released? The fall from 4 months prior? Wouldn't a release be a surgery? And if you tear your meniscus you'll not ever notice in most people?
Oct '16: Fell, landed in splits.
Dec '16: PT twisted left knee, loud pop. MRI #1: patella off track
Feb '17: New PT popped kneecap into place
May '17: MRI #2: Meniscus signal, severe cartilage damage.
Feb '18: MRI #3: No meniscus tear, patella off to the side, shallow groove, barely any cartilage
