How about getting a knee brace to immobilize it for a while, and then slowly build the muscles back up through exercise. The problem is going to be mechanical. Yes, Vitamin C and bone broth can help with the cartilage, but allowing it time to... (more)

Skip the dips and bench for now. If something's torn and you're doing pushups again without pain, you're probably healing up. Don't screw it up. Just do pushups in the mean time and wait.
