Patellar tracking: if the kneecap doesn't track correctly on the femur bone like a train on the railroad track the Cartlidge on the underside will get damaged. At times the patella maybe even slide partially out of joint and cause edema or bruising on the underside of the knee. This will cause pain when you go down steps, run, or get up from prolong sitting for example like going to the movies or driving for a while
