    Are these knees healing or what?

    What the hell. I messed up my knees(assuming sprains) two months back doing deads and they are taking FOREVER to heal. They started out as being swollen, stiff, and painful all the time. As of now, they seem to be very stiff all of the time yet not quite as painful. Is this how the healing process happens with knee sprains? Anyone who's had bad knee sprains care to chime in here?
    My doc said to just ice them to keep the swelling down and where braces for support...I'm also going in tomorrow or next Tuesday for Xrays results. God damn whatever.
    This thread more of a rant than anything, but could someone throw me some tips or something to help these heal? Should I be sleeping with a pillow between my knees or something? Sorry, but this is too damn slow! I want to squat and deadlift again..AHHHHHHHHH!

    Knees take a long time to heal.

    And perhaps you should get an MRI as well...and maybe see a sports doctor.

    Visit your sports doctor of course but....
    -have you been doing activity that involves knee flexion or high impact on the knees? Like scarz said, they take alot of rest and rehabilitation depending on the injury
    -have you bought a foam roller or seen an ART specialist? Soft tissue work is important for healthy knees
    -have you been stretching? I'm not sure the extent of your injury but this should be done if possible. There are some good stretches in Sensei's squat Rx videos...check em out.
