KNEE CONDITIONS: KNEECAP DISLOCATION
AT GUSTAVEL ORTHOPEDICS
A kneecap dislocation or patellar sublimation occurs when there is a sudden twisting of the knee. The patella does not hold within its groove or swing from one side to the other, leading to the knee problem. Those with weak knee joints are prone to such conditions at any time of their life. Other individuals at risk for kneecap dislocation are teenagers and athletes due to their activity level.
