Mechanism leading to injury – Hill sprint, 8 count burpee, and squats.– No signs of swelling, or pain that day of working out.– Next day, while walking to my bathroom, I had a sharp left lateral pain, but never reoccurred.MRI – Knee is in perfect shapeOrthopedic – Stated that I have a patella stress syndrome. He’s not sure what else he can do besides physical therapy.Chiropractor- Stated that I have a tight IT band.Symptoms,A) Left top corner of my patella there will be a random soft lump when I move my leg in certain ways, it goes away once I extend my knee. However, once I contract my knee towards my body, the soft lump will become bigger. The lump causes a catching sensation in my knee, to reset my knee, I have to extend it to make the lump disappear.B) When running I feel as if my something is snapping from lateral to mid line after going past .62 miles. The snapping over my patella is from the middle patella to the lower tendon,C) My knee clicks when pushing away from a 60-90 degree angle while sitting.D) Knee stiffens up when walking more than a milePlease help me figure this out!

Are you seeing any improvements with what you are doing?
What did the doctor say about the soft lump?
May need to see a different doctor to determine what is going on.
Have you look up/downstream of the knee?
Have you had anyone look at your running mechanics?
This maybe where the issue originates. You want to look at movement patterns first.
You are able to buffer the deviations in technique for awhile until your body says no more then its game over.
Have you done any mwods that address the patella?
