Tightness around patella and popping to release pressure
« on: June 30, 2015, 10:21:13 PM »
Last month I was having it band issues while running, so I laid off and did some rehab for that injury. Since then I've been having tightness around the patellar tendon while only standing. When I feel this tightness, I am able to pop my knee by either twisting my leg slightly inward or laying down and pulling my knee toward my chest. The pop is usually felt around the patella or on the lateral side of the knee/slightly behind the knee. There is no pain when it pops or when doing any exercises for that matter. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this type of symptom? Its become uncomfortable and frustrating to deal with because I feel like I've tried all kinds of rehab.
