But can't tell you this week's lottery numbers!
Sep 8th, 2016
I was diagonsed with Chrondomalacia Patella in both knees last month – and my orthopaedics surgeon told me that I have to avoid high impact activities and said it is not curable. It can get better or improve but it is not 100% curable and surgery will make it worse.
Can you please let me know if this is curable and how long would it take to cure it if at all its curable?
The Guru Responded:
Shame on your OS – unless you can poke a probe in the back of your kneecap and see that it’s soft and flakey you haven’t got CPM. It’s horrendously over diagnosed and has lots of nasty, historical connotations associated with it that just aren’t true!
You’ve just got an issue with the way your kneecaps sit on the front of your femurs. That’s it!
You can do impact activity and I’m sure you can get much, much better where you are pain free and doing what you’d like to do rather than doing something that someone has told you can’t.
Don’t go anywhere near a knife but do see someone who looks after (and gets them better!) patellofemoral issues day in and day out.
Don’t try to do too much too soon and you absolutely need to have your knee taped to see and feel the difference in your symptoms. Then it’s rehab, rehab, rehab.
Have a try of this taping – watch the video
