Cartilage Regeneration

My chondromalasia patellae problem is almost cured now. The cause was imbalance between VMO and VL. I have gained the muscle strength and balance by physiotherapy. My doubt is although the patella tracking is aligned now but what about the damage of knee cartilage that occurrd due to poor patella tracking in last 1 yr?

Are you having any problem right now? Do you feel pain or anything? If you don't have pain, then don't think about it. Just continue exercises. You should be fine.

i don't think within 1 yr your cartilage undergone damage..there might be some damage but I don't think it will be significant..you are 31 yr old and your cartilage is also of good quality so nothing to worry about...more so ever if you realy want to assess the damage,you can undergo cartigramme(cartilage mapping)
