Chondromalacia is now being treated at the center for regenerative medicine. "This is a common problem that we treat with regenerative medicine," said Dr. A.J. Farshchian MD.
Chondromalacia patella as well as osteoarthritis are cartilage damages typically producing anterior knee pain. Another name for it is patellofemoral pain syndrome.
This entity is more common in young adult females, the theory is overuse, trauma, and/or excessive stresses on the knee could be cause of it. Having Chondromalacia patella may be a risk factor for arthritis of the kneecap in older individuals. Symptoms could range from Knee tenderness especially going up and down the stairs to a grinding sensation when the knee gets extended. X-Rays are typically normal especially in early stages.
Glucosamine may play a role. Avoidance of trauma or excessive stress on the knee may help.
