Does anyone else have trouble with patellar subluxation? I’ve had a knee problem since high school and the doctors (after MRI’s, etc) have told me there is nothing structurally wrong with the knee. My knee could pop at any moment, even walking, but particularly when running or cutting. I assume that it is a mechanical problem, since even when I was strong, was in good condition, flexible, and Crossfitting consistently, and got my squat figures up I still had the issue. I never had the patella completely dislocate, it always returned to position, but in bad instances the MCL would sprain and I’d have some damage to the cartilage.
Have you had anyone work with your on technique for the skills where you experience the problem?
Have someone video tape you squatting, running etc so you can see exactly what you are doing. This will help you to identify where your knee is tracking and why. Identifying the cause of the issue is key in addressing it so the problem is resolved.
Seeing the movement can help identify where you need to start addressing the issue.
An update – I’ve been working w. my local Crossfit coach to refine my squat form. I’ve changed the angle of my feet to be nearly straight forward, and adjusted my stance a bit narrower. The biggest improvements and most revealing of my movement issues is the press, which showed that my lower body is often unstable, making it difficult to stabilize the weight overhead.
Great to hear of the improvements you are experiencing.
Have you watched the episodes that hit on aspects of standing?
Are you doing exercises to strengthen your feet?
Have you watched the 3 part series on rebuilding your feet?
Transitioning to a lower profile shoe can take time. A lower profile shoe demands alot more out of your ankle and heel cord rom. Some will demand on what you are currently wearing.
Are you addressing ankle and heel cord rom?
