Default Warm Knees - No Pain. Why?

G'day guys and gals,

I've come with a bit of a doozy of a question. I do some personal training and one of my trainees has reported a rather interesting issue and I was wondering if anyone here had heard of anything similar or had any idea what to do. So far, two encounters with physiotherapists have proved fruitless, hence my asking here.

General Stats:
19 year old Female, Approx 230lbs, did Karate regularly for around 2 years but stopped approximately 4 years ago now.

Injury History:
Received a kick to the left knee, patella popped out. It was replaced immediately and there were no issues. 6 months later, patella popped out again (didn't get why). A small chip of bone found it's way in to the ITB (which I believe has been removed, will have to confirm).

The "Issue"
Every so often, client will get a warm sensation above both of her knees (note: injury only occured to left knee). Skin becomes warm to the touch. This sensation occurs at any time (i.e. not necessarily after exercise or a shower or something). There's no pain assosciated with the event, however I thought it might be worth investigating further as it's something I've never heard of before.

Thoughts?
