correcting laterally tilted patella
« on: August 25, 2014, 03:44:41 PM »
Hi everyone,

I wonder if anyone had this problem and managed to correct it without surgical operation.

I have lateralisation of the patella and a tilt on the knee cap.
I have been told for the lateralisation issue I need a Tto and for the tilt I need a lateral release.
They told me this was something that wouldn't correct itself without surgery. I also have damage to the back of the knee cap and mpfl rupture, I'm also having mpfl reconstruction.
I understand that thigh muscles can effect the knee.
Hope this helps
