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

Start with an x-ray, then maybe an mri. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not all clicks lead to surgery, but you owe it to yourself to help figure out the diagnosis by obtaining a comprehensive evaluation. If therapy is recommended you should do the therapy. ...Read more
