Patella tracking instability
The patella is held in place at the front of the knee joint by tendons on the top and bottom and by ligaments on the sides of the patella. In addition, there is a layer of cartilage underneath the patella which assists it in gliding smoothly. Patella tracking instability refers to a condition that causes the patella to move towards the inside of the leg or outside of the leg as the leg bends and straightens. Symptoms include discomfort/pain in the area when performing any activity which requires the leg to bend or straighten. It may also manifest itself as a 'giving way'/loosening sensation in the knee.
We recommend seeing your doctor if you are experiencing any of these symptoms for a complete diagnosis and treatment plan.
