1 doctor agrees

In brief: Lots of stuff

It's usually multifactorial.
Imbalances in muscles, tight it bands, flat feet or overpronation, wide hips, knock knees, etc. They all work together to contribute to pfs.

Agree;orthopedically the 'worst' patellar instability patients are those patients that are ligamentously lax(loose jointed )w/ large 'Q' angles(quadriceps angles> 18-20 degrees) w/ relatively weak quads and participate in cutting sports.
