Patellar instability tends to develop during adolescence, in most cases as a result of anatomical idiosyncrasies in the patellofemoral joint. It can also be a result of acute trauma to the knee area. When the knee is in use, the patella moves along a well defined groove. Multiple tendons and muscles are responsible for keeping the patella in this groove. High energy trauma can break these structures and dislocate the patella. Such conditions are incompatible with normal knee function and can be quite debilitating. The system of exercises here aims to improve the tone of the affected muscles and maintain a proper and painless excursion of the kneecap.
