I dislocated my knee last year. I am currently awaiting patellar stabilization surgery as there is no other option. This will include MPFL reconstruction and tibial tubercle transfer. I am finding the pain to be increasing, my mobility is very reduced, and I am suffering constant dislocations. I have taken MRI and X-ray. The physio exercises did not work; while awaiting surgery, is there any support/brace/mobility aids or anything I can do to help with day-to-day mobility and preventing dislocations? Please help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I read your concern. In my opinion, you can go for knee brace support to help stabilize the patella to some extent for now. Some brace like knee brace with side stabilizers and patella gel pads for knee support might help you as it has velcro straps to secure the patella position and offer support during activities. You can learn to tape your patella to help keep the patella in place until correction. You can self-tape the patella and prevent it from dislocating.
I hope this is helpful for you for now.
