What's That Crunch?

If you feel a "crunch" in your knee when you crouch or squat, you may have the start of a degenerative condition called chondromalacia patella. It's often caused by abnormal tracking of the patella, or kneecap. If this is happening, I adjust the kneecap and give the patient exercises to do at home to help keep the kneecap tracking normally.
