Runner’s Knee

Runner’s Knee is a debilitating condition affecting thousands of individuals seeking a healthier lifestyle.

Runner’s Knee is what we call “Chondromalacia Patella”, is the softening and degeneration of the cartilage located underneath the patella. General symptoms would include but not limited to: a grinding of popping sensation when the individual bends or straightens his or her knee, increased pain when descending or ascending stairs, increased pain from a sitting to a standing position.

Generally speaking, these symptoms can become steadily worse if left untreated.

It is a good idea to seek medical attention for a proper evaluation.
