Every case is unique and we always customize our treatments to each individual. We have some basic guidelines that we use to help people know how many treatments they need, and what to expect. It is unusual that someone with Chondromalacia Patellas only needs 1 treatment. For most cases that are mild to moderate, 3 injections are recommended. This can help heal the area, and give years of relief. Again, eliminate that cause and you will have a more successful Runner’s Knee Treatment. If it is more sever, like bone on bone for your knee cap, then we recommend a series of 5 injections, and we may need a 6th. The injections happen 3- 4 weeks apart, and while we are doing the treatments, we need to stop the activity that is irritating the knee. We are helping the area to heal, but if you continue to damage the knee while we are doing the treatments, we will not have as good results. 10 days to 2 weeks after our last injection we want to start incorporating the exercise again and should be seeing noticeable improvements. We are best for Chondromalacia Patella for your knees.
