Chondromalacia Patella

I was diagnosed with chondromalacia in my left leg 4 years back. Doctor advised to take precautions like not to jump, run, jogg, fold knees, climb stairs, told me to do exercise and gave some medications. Sometimes I didn't followed the precautions he told me. Now, whenever I give stress on my knees, it pains for few days and if I take rest, it gets back to normal. Now, I have joined karate classes, where I have to jump, run, hop etc, so it pains. Kindly recommend some solution.

Hello....... The goal of treatment is to reduce the pressure on your kneecap and joint. Resting, stabilizing, and icing the joint may be the first line of treatment. ... Since in karate patella comes under pressure it's better to quit it.. You have to lead a moderate life........
