Chondromalacia Patella (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
The outlook for recovery from chondromalacia patella is excellent. Full recovery is expected, even though it can take months to years to resolve. This is particularly the case when chondromalacia patella occurs in teenage girls, whose bodies are undergoing substantial physical changes. Fortunately, their symptoms tend to completely resolve in adulthood.
