knee injury

Hello all. I'm new here. I'm 50. Play a lot on a hard court. Heard a big click-click when landing after jumping for an overhead. Couldn't straighten the leg or walk that evening. 48-hours later a lot better. Never really hurt too much. What happened? Will I play again? Anyone had this experience?

Re: knee injury

Thank you for the reply, kind Sir. I did see the sports trainer at school. He said I landed wrong. He said something about the ligaments that cross in front of the knee. He said when I could do one-foot jump squats on it I could play. I was afraid to even try for many days and then finally was able to do a couple. Later I thought I would be able to play a little basketball and soon discovered I wasn't ready. I have since given up on the idea of tennis for at least another couple of weeks, which will mean a month lay off. However, I feel it may be longer. It never really hurt a lot, no sharp pain, no great swelling. I walk fine, can't really run like before though. Do you or anyone here have any thoughts at all, no similar experiences?

Re: knee injury

Thanks for the reply, mate! Yeah, I'm all over that stretching thing. I got Pain Free by Pete Egoscue and have been doing the foot E-cises for over ten days now: foot circles, flex points, calf stretch, hamstring stretch, static back and my favorite the Air Bench. I have a glass of water when I get up, put on some meditation tunes and do it up for about twenty minutes religiously every morning. Never felt better.
