A 23-year-old male asked:

I feel painless clicking and sometimes movement in the patella when i bend my knee 90 degrees onto the lateral side. i had a meniscus repair surgery three months ago. is this a bad sign or will it improve with strength as my other clicking did?

The clicking of the knee can be the result of several things. Commonly we associated it with non cornering tendon rubbing.
