Thank you for your query. Had you shared the reports of the MRI scan it would have been better to give an opinion. As you are worried about the pain and patellar subluxation I suggest that you follow the advice of the orthopedic surgeon and get physiotherapy under his guidance.

In patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), there are some definite changes in the cartilage which would be evident in MRI. Physiotherapy is the main stay of management of PFPS.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.
