Patient :I'm a gymnast and was doing a front tuck front tuck tumbling pass. Out of the first tuck my knees both shot backward (hyper extended) and it kind of felt like a rubber band being pulled back then shot forward. Did I sprain or tear something in my knee?
Symptoms: Little swelling, little bruising, no pain when jumping, pain when extending or bending the knee to fast, unable to walk without limping but can put full weight on the knee when standing, pain when suddenly twisting knee.
