Default patellar tracking

has anyone had issues patellar tracking?
if so what did you do to resolve this?

I have on/off issue with my right petellar, and its on at the moment
Its fine when walking, running, jumping, squatting, kicking.

I used to think above activities aggravated it, but the issue can accrue out of no where when the knee has been well rested, the knee will pop and click when extended, and a burning pain will be felt under the knee cap

The confusing thing is - the two physiotherapist I've seen say there appears to be no serious issue, and I was give corrective insoles to fix collapsed arches in my feet, I wear these 90% of time.
CT scan shows up clear also.

I foam roll and stretch daily to keep it in check, but I'm not really getting any benefit from this right now, it feels like this has stopped working.


any thoughts?

If you want to try flossing you can just cut open a bicycle tube ($3 at a sporting goods store) and use that. I don't have the fancy voodoo bands so I'm not sure how they compare and I've only used the bike tube on my elbows. I'm not sure if they would be less effective on knees but for 3 bucks the bike tube is worth trying before dropping $30 on the voodoo bands.

Default patellar tracking

How is your VMO firing? Is it sore after squatting? If so, is it significantly smaller than the vastus laterialis?

Collapsed feet often point toward knee valgus, inactive VMO, weakness of gluteus medius and overactivation of the TFL...

Result are often pronated feet, increased q-angle, valgus knees and inactive VMO, internal rotation and adduction of the femur, and patellar mistracking...

I hate it when I have to Google half the words to figure out the question.

VMO= The vastus medialis is a muscle which is a part of the quadriceps muscle group, located on the front of the thigh. It is the most inner, of the quadriceps muscles. It extends the length of the thigh.

Vastus lateralis= muscle is on the side of the thigh. This muscle is the largest of the quadriceps group (often called quads)

VMO is the inner and lateralis the outer quad. Education of anatomy is a great way of learning logical ways to keep yourself uninsured. Recommended

A friend had some issues with patella maltracking that affected him for a long time. I don't know the specifics of what he did but he used the info from this youtube channel and I think there's a free ebook/guide on the website specifically for that problem too. Hopefully something of use for you in there somewhere.

Wasn't meant like that at all. However it's a bit unnecessary quoting me and complaining about having to look up two words, when I'm giving out free advice.
