This is where an understanding of pain is helpful, to progress you have to be able to tell if you pain is normal stress from pushing yourself or an injury getting ready to happen.
Know your pain.
Justify your satisfaction.
My opinion on the squat.

Very well put!!! I would like to add though, if you can do light squats without risking anything, then I think you should. Rep it out....but be smart about it. It might actually strengthen a weak point over a long haul.
