Can catching and pressure in knee while walking be a runners knee flare up? Also aftet kneeling it continues to catch and lock all day.
Yes, but...: In general, a low impact activity that does not aggravate your symptoms is good for you. This does depend on which tendon is torn and if you have an unstable knee. If there is any instability, a brace should help you to walk comfortably until you are strong enough to go without it. Physical therapy can help maximize strength of surrounding muscles to compensate for the injured one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
