The most common condition of chronic knee pain is Chondromalacia, which is also called chondromalacia patella. Chondromalacia is also called patellofemoral syndrome. This condition is caused when the cartilage beneath the knee cap begins to soften, and as the cartilage begins to soften there is a small area that begins to break down, and as a result it causes pain around the knee. Instead of the knee cap moving over the knee smoothly, the knee cap begins to glide against the thigh bone when you move your knee. As a result, you can have anywhere from a mild to a serious case of wearing away the cartilage. Chondromalacia usually is diagnosed in girls. Females that have reached their teenage years have a greater chance of getting Chondromalacia because of the amount of pressure that is placed upon the knee while the knee is going through a growing stage.
Some of the common knee problems treated by Dr. Royal are:
- Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis
