      Hello,

      My right knee started aggravating me when doing various weightlifting movements, so the next step for me was to go to the doctor and they brought to my attention that I had a bipartite patella.  I started doing PT work 3x a week to hopefully strengthen my hips & glutes and while training now I don’t have as much pain.  Though, whenever I sit for prolonged times (20 min+) then my knee where the bipartite’s located starts aggravating me.  I have heard of various surgeries to take out the fragment and have read that this can be a positive.  Any suggestions?

      Are in an organized sitting position?
      You have less tolerance for less than optimal positioning because of the bipartite patella.
      What is your leg positioning when sitting?

      Kaitlin,

      I would say that i am in an organized sitting position: feet on the floor, knees at 90 degrees, hips under the rest of my body and sitting in an upright position.  If I prop my leg up to be straight then it isn’t that noticeable, though I don’t always have that luxury.
