Recurrent dislocation of knee
patellar dislocation occurs when the knee cap slides out of the trochlea. When dislocation of the patella occurs on more than one occasion, it is referred to as recurrent patellar dislocation. The risk of further dislocation increases to almost 70% to 80% after two episodes of dislocation.
To help reduce your chance of patellar dislocation, keep quadriceps and hamstring muscles strong with strengthening and stretching exercises.
Early treatment to help prevent re-injury
more important, there's a 44 percent risk that you'll dislocate your knee a second time. After a second dislocation, there's a 50 percent chance of a third dislocation. After every dislocation, it becomes easier and easier for the kneecap to dislocate.
Clam exercise: lie on your uninjured side with your hips and knees bent and feet together. Slowly raise your top leg toward the ceiling while keeping your heels touching each other. Hold for 2 seconds and lower slowly. Do 2 sets of 15 repetitions.
