TOP 5 EXERCISES FOR PATELLAR SUBLUXATION

We are partnering with select gyms to keep our communities healthy, active and pain-free. Enjoy.

#1

Range of Motion

Following patellar subluxation the knee tends to swell, restricting the range-of-motion. This exercise methodically and safely address this tightness and ROM restriction.

#2

Short Arc Quads

This exercise targets the end range of knee extension strength. This range often weakens following a subluxation injury, leading to knee buckling and pain.

We're partnering with the world's best gyms to kick joint pain's butt.

#3

Straight Leg Raises

The quadriceps are key to activities such as getting out of chairs without pain or difficulty. This exercise strengthens them without adding strain to the patella (kneecap.)

#4

Clamshells

Strengthening the outer hip to recover from a knee injury may seem strange. But research shows strong outer hips reduce knee instability and are an important part of recovery.

#5

Hamstrings Recruitment

This exercise is a conservative approach to both improving hamstrings contraction AND your knee's range-of-motion.

BONUS

Knee Icing

Excessive swelling restricts knee range of motion, inhibits the knee musculature and slow the healing process. Icing quickly and methodically for short periods for the first 3-5 days following injury is extremely beneficial.
