30. Feel knee pop or snap around/from knee sometimes when turning foot out. MRI Dx w/chondromalacia. Told patellar maltrack. Recovery time? Any advice

If your patella is not tracking properly, then I recommend a physical therapy program, patellar stabilizing brace and rest from activities that worsen symptoms. Also, update/improve athletic footwear. ...Read more
