Foam rolling for Patella subluxation
It's for my right knee . I have been diagnosed with mild lateral Patella subluxation and mild chrondomalacia Patella. MRI also shows that congenitally or developmentally prominent lateral trochlear ridge and Patella alta. I am going to PT for past 4 months. Have this burning pain for past 6 months. It burns on top of the knee and the lateral(right) side. I have some Swelling on top and right side of the knee. PT tried aggressive dry needling for 3 sessions.i also have some scar tissue from my childhood in that knee.PT did some for scar tissue release. Something like needling.I do stretching and strengthening exercises at home. PT told me to start foam rolling everyday. Does it help in my case? I have to do foam rolling on thigh (quad) and in the right side of the thigh. What should be my next step to proceed further to recover soon? I get burning pain whenever I bend my knee and stretch straight. It's throughout the day and night.it also hurts while standing.What to do next? Pls help.

Hello, you can start with ice compressions for 5minutes on the burning surface area (thrice a day) & check if the sensation fades away, the ice will also help with reducing the swelling around your knee, coming to foam rolling it is beneficial. Go for a knee support either by taping or a cloth based knee cap to alleviate pain while standing.
Next Steps
Consult a neuro-physio & get assessed if the burning sensation doesn’t fade away after 5days of ice compression.

Hello. Condromalacia is not a painful thing unless you are staining the knee too much. Maybe, you need to be reassessed for the pain you are having. You could visit a nearest McKenzie certified therapist for assessment and they will be able to help you in a better way.
Next Steps
Get a few tests such as Vit D3 and Vit B12 levels tested. Go to a Mckenzie Certified therapist.
Health Tips
If possible avoid long sitting. Get up every 45 minutes from a sitting position.
