Abstract

Patella instability is a common pathology treated conservatively by physical therapists. However, due to its high rate of reoccurrence, pain secondary to patella instability can often turn into chronic pain. This is commonly seen in the female teenage population and can lead to an increase in anxiety and depression. The purpose of this case study is to highlight the conservative treatment of patella instability while including the psychosocial factors that can influence pain.
