Patella Alta
« on: April 16, 2014, 06:53:11 PM »
Hi, I am new to this site, so I am sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place.  Anyway, I am a female in high school and I've had patella alta for the past two years in both knees. I run track and play competitive soccer, so I usually have two practices per day, which adds to the strain.  Thankfully, neither of my knees have dislocated yet, but I have constant pain.  I've gone to the physical therapist and the doctor, and I stretch, roll, do knee strengthening exercises, and ice everyday.  I also get acupuncture and wear rock tape, and I've tried taking time off (it didn't help, I only got out of shape)... so basically I've tried everything.  It all helps a little, but I want to play college soccer and my knees are only getting worse. So, my question is, any advice?  All advice is welcome, I just need to try something new. Thanks!
