        I was doing the hip external rotation/flexion mobilization on a small bench with my foot and knee not on the bench (like this http://i.imgur.com/wh9kciD.jpg) and when I dropped down my knee popped real loud and it felt as if my femur moved downwards a few millimeters (in the direction my finger is pointing).


        A day later it hurts on every movement, especially when extending the knee with a bit of resistance and when I push my foot inward (just like the mobilization). 

        This spot http://i.imgur.com/3QGv51j.jpg is painful to the touch and hurts most. Also the back (more on the distal side) of my knee hurts. 

        My biceps femoris, gastrocnemius and itband/tfl have tightened up a lot. 

        I have a doctors appointment on thursday and have my knee compressed and elevated, but I’d like to know what this could be.

            I got an mri scan done and there was nothing unusual except a pulled popliteus and a bit of swelling. I have another appointment on Wednesday and there we will discuss the mri scan and I guess I’ll get physical therapy prescribed.
