Chondromalacia patella
I have been having knee problems for 2 1/2 years. A year ago I wa told I have chondromalacia patella. I was also told " I'm sorry but there's nothing we can do just wait it out." I have had x rays an MRI an altra sound physical therapy and loads if knee braces. I'm 15 and was told that by the time I'm 16 I should be fine. Well that's 4 months away and my knees are getting worse. Iceing and pain pills don't help not even prescription ones. I wear knee braces during karate and do very little kicking. The braces help some. I also have orthotics in my shoes because I'm flat footed. My toes point out I walk like a duck. My knee will not go over my toe even if it is held by 2 people and pushed toward it. The doctors don't help they just say wait it out. What can I do to help my self? I used to be very active and miss running a lot. What more should I do besides braces?  Thanks- Morgan
