Condromalacia patelar

En la condromalacia patelar se produce una sensación de chirrido o roce al extender la rodilla. Se piensa que la causa está relacionada con el uso excesivo, traumatismo y/ o fuerzas anormales sobre la rodilla como el alineamiento ligeramente anormal de la rótula y el fémur. Entre los síntomas se encuentran sensibilidad de la rodilla, dolor en la rodilla después de estar sentado por tiempo prolongado, dolor en la rodilla que empeora al subir o bajar escaleras o levantarse de una silla y sensación de roce en la rodilla.Condromalacia patelar
