    I was in a spider guard 50/50 mix and my partner pushed my leg off and my knee locked up. It felt like my IT band slipped over a bone. It reset with a very audible thud that we both heard. My leg is fine now, I'll be going to a doctor Monday.

    Anyone have this happen?

    Is spider guard hard on the knees?

    Do knee braces help?

    I think you just tore your meniscus.

    This happened when I was 17 also. The doctor I saw said my knee was fine, but didn't know what caused it. There is no pain or mobility issues. However, the first time I did it it hurt like hell.

    If it felt like your IT band actually slipped over a bone and then reset, it's likely that is what happened but i would also check for meniscal damage.

    This happens to me too, but only if I'm around funky electronic music.

    The doctors can't explain it.

    I have similar.... Knee locks , excruciating pain, straighten it back out with a pop and pain disappears.

    Does your knee remain "tender " for a while after?

    I've also been told meniscus but I figure I can deal with it for now

    Catching and locking is a sign of a torn meniscus. Get it checked by a doctor.
