Knee Cap Dislocation

What is it?

Dislocation refers to a condition in which the patella (kneecap) is completely displaced from its normal alignment. Majority of patella dislocations occur towards the lateral (outside) side of the knee.

Why do I have it?

Often caused by a blow or sudden change in direction, but may be a associated with a shallow femoral groove, weak inner quadriceps or tight lateral muscles.

When does it hurt?

Pain will be felt immediately following a patella dislocation injury with soreness persisting a few days following.

The Bracing Experts Advice:

To prevent further dislocation a variety of knee brace options are available, usually featuring a “C” or “O” shaped pad, to stabilize the patella during daily activities.
