A member asked:

30. feel knee pop or snap around/from knee sometimes when turning foot out. mri dx w/chondromalacia. told patellar maltrack. recovery time? any advice

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Variable: The recovery time can vary from weeks to years. Chondromalacia implies long-term, often irreversible damage to the cartilage that covers the bone. However, symptoms can improve or even disappear. If your patella is not tracking properly, then I recommend a physical therapy program, patellar stabilizing brace and rest from activities that worsen symptoms. Also, update/improve athletic footwear.
