Your problem: may be a cartilage issue on the BACK of your kneecap. Injections might help (Cortisone) and P.T> might also give you relief as you strengthen the Quadriceps muscle which "contains" the knee cap. Remember the back of the kneecap is the FRONT of the knee joint itself. Hope this is helpful! Dr Z
