Chondromalacia Patella Pain ? Help

  1. Chondromalacia Patella Pain ? Help


    Hi

    I am writing on behalf of a relative who has chondromalacia patella pain, he has suffering knee pains on both knees, the pain in his knees are all around his knee, like a throbbing pain, has anyone any experience with these symptoms, if so, could you share any information for the following questions?

    Would be much appreciated

    Exercises the physio told him to do aren't helping (body squats, lunges), there are piercing pain doing these,are these correct ?

    What sort of excercises or training could he do, to prevent pains in his knees and strengthen the muscles around them?

    Is there any supplement to help reduce the pain and help the joints?

    He has been doing sports up to this point, now the pain is to bad and needs advice to continue his training without continuation of chondromalacia symptoms or help reduce the pain in order to continue excercising.

    He participates in Raquetball, front crawl swimming, jogging/ walking


  2. Do the trigger points "around" the knees hurt when he pushed on them? ie: in the quads, hams, calves etc.

    Has he tried different shoes/soles?

    It seems to just be the knees hurting, the cartilage has worn down, to the point where it is nearly bone on bone.

    If that is actually his/docs diagnosis, how does he feel that exercise will replace or help that situation?
    I don't understand!?
