Had some knee bursitis and was given a cortisone shot. The bursitis calmed down, but the knee pain is present. After walking there is pain at the top of the kneecap. It seems as though I can flex the knee, but only when the hip is flexed. Once I start to extend the hip the pain (at the top of the knee cap) becomes excruciating. I saw the physio and he said the kneecap is sitting too high, and told me to do deep quad stretching, no matter how painful to help "lower" the kneecap. Does this sound correct?
