I went to the doctor today for a knee problem and he said that I had all the symptoms of Chondromalacia. It's been acting up alot lately while I train. Within 10 miles of a ride my kneecap begins to hurt. I was just wondering if anyone else has this condition and what you do about it. I bought a brace today at wal-mart that said it was for chondromalacia patella. I rode around on my mountain bike for a little and my knee didn't bother me while wearing it. Not sure if it will fix the problem though. Guess i'll find out tomorrow morning on the road. Any suggestions please?
