Just swimming and spinning. Low low impact. 2 days ago saw my Dr. With MRI results so waiting for the orthopedic appt. My only walks are on cushioned trails followed by ice and meds...poles for more distance support. Don't forget to keep on a meds schedule as the pain (and fear) gets too too nasty. I take Mobicix already for herniated lumbar discs, that helps , with regular 4X 500 mg. Acetaminophen a day.
Chondromalacia literally translates to softening of the cartilage, but it usually refers to chondromalacia patellae (see related question).
Chondromalacia means an abnormal appearance of cartilage, especially of the kneecap. The doctor noticed chondromalacia at the joints.
Any animal with cartilage can have chondromalacia, which is a degenerative process that causes cartilage to soften.
Chondromalacia of patella
Arthritis as well as chondromalacia.
1928 - Büdinger 3 first described retropatellar cartilage changes, but it was Aleman 1 who introduced the term chondromalacia in 1928. Chondromalacia has been used improperly to describe the syndrome of patellofemoral pain. Articular cartilage degeneration is just one ...Büdinger first described retropatellar cartilage changes, but it was Aleman who introduced the term chondromalacia in 1928. Chondromalacia has been used improperly to describe the syndrome of patellofemoral pain. Articular cartilage degeneration is just one of the many possible causes of patellofemoral pain. Chondromalacia actually means "soft cartilage" and is a pathologic description of changes seen on articular cartilage. Many authors have developed classification (source Google Search)
Chondromalacia is abnormal softening of cartilage of the joints. Bicompartmental means relating to two compartments and is normally used referring to something in both the inside and the outside of the knee (the medial and lateral compartments). So I would assume that bicompartmental chondromalacia is abnormal softening of the cartilage of both the inside and outside of the knee. Hope this has helped.

Prolotherapy for chondromalacia involves intra-articular (inside) injections as well as injections on the outside of the knee, stimulating the growth of many musculoskeletal structures around the patella. It is for this reason the knee gets stronger and the pain of chondromalacia is relieved. Hope this helps.
