Gentle exercises : Chondromalacia is a softening of the cartilage between the patella (knee cap) and underlying joint. The best early treatment is to gently strengthen the quads (thigh muscle). Step up with your painful leg onto a 4" block/book and down. Repeat as many reps as comfortable and work up to doing 200/session. Then do it on a stair, which is typically 6". This is to avoid too much knee bend/strain.
