More About Chondromalacia Patella

Chondromalacia Patella: it isn’t only for runners, this condition can be found in young athletes, as well as in people with osteoarthritis.

Another cause of the problem can be caused by a misalignment of the knee in the knee joint itself.

The cartilage under the kneecap is a natural shock absorber. Runner’s knee may be developed when the knee is overused or injured. The most common symptom is knee pain that worsens when walking up or down stairs. Kneeling, squatting, or sitting cross-legged may also hurt.
