Nutrition | Knee pain, chrondomalacia patellar


Can I get rid of this condition by trying arches in my shoes, and by doing certain excercises. I have pain in the front and back of my knee after any form of low impact exercise. How can I work up to this type of exercise. As an aside, I have osteoporosis in my spine with some compression fractures. One doctor, told me not to even walk on my knee. I believe everyone should exercise for all the right reasons. HELP!

Hi,

Certain exercises can be provided to prohibit knee pain you are experiencing right now. These are given by personal trainors with certifications or I could recommend you one. He provides specific exercises from specific injuries or pathologic conditions with personal visits. His name is Christopher Munce.

Unfortunately I have had a similar experience. The good news is that Arches will help and you should try and build up your quadricep muscles to help keep your patella in track. You may need to speak to a physiotherapist to see which area of the quadricep is weakest which is normally the vastus medialis. The bad news is that if you have been suffering from this for a while you may need an athroscopy operation to remove anything that is damaged beyond repair. Hope this helps and dont be afraid to contact me if you want to speak some more as I know how frustrating it can be.
