    Patellofemoral InstabilityYour kneecap, or patella, connects muscles in your thigh (femur) to your shinbone (tibia). When your knee bends, it slides along a groove (femoral groove) at the end of your thigh bone. Patellofemoral Instability is a condition that occurs when the kneecap comes out of this groove. When this happens, it can result in pain, difficulty walking, and other problems. When the kneecap comes out of the groove a little, but not completely, it is called subluxated. When it moves completely out of the groove, it is dislocated.
