Brief overview of the episode:

           Patella dislocations account for between 2-3% of all knee injuries, they occur most frequently in younger, female, athletes. Some of the common causes include: shallow trochlear groove, trauma and a powerful quad contraction with knee flexion and external rotation.

            As with most dislocation, unfortunately, if you have had one you are more likely to have another. This does not necessarily mean that you will have a second only that your chance is higher. To better prevent a dislocation it is important to address not just quad and hamstring strength but to increase hip strength.

            The most important of which is hip abduction. This will prevent the knee from moving into adduction and internal rotation. A position that places the patella in a shallower portion of the trochlear groove and makes it easier to dislocate.
