However, squatting involves bending so i wonder what you mean by "can't bend". There are a few possibilities but you will need to see a doctor. ...Read moreGet help now ›
I twisted my right knee some years back and has given me problems every since! it sometimes buckels without warning and it pops, and can't straighten?
You most likely have: A meniscal tear and all your symptoms, that you describe, are typical for such a problem. The knee buckling under you is a dangerous situation, as it makes you fall and can result in broken bones or other injuries.
