Prolotherapy: A Chondromalacia Patella Treatment

Chondromalacia patella can be treated, and treated effectively! Many times at Prolotherapy of Denver we are seeing people having great results in just 3 treatments. Chondromalacia patella is a mouthful, but some people know this condition as Runner’s Knee. It is a painful condition that happens when the back of the knee cap, your patella, starts to scrap against the joint. As a degenerative condition, many times people are told that there is nothing you can do to fix it, only slow it down. That is not true. Prolotherapy helps to heal the area and is an effective Runner’s Knee treatment.

What Is Runner's Knee?

Runner’s Knee is another name for Chondromalacia Patella. It is a condition where the back of your knee cap, or patella, rubs against your knee and starts to break down. Often times people will feel grinding or crunchiness when they bend there knee. This grinding sound is called crepitus. Some people say it almost sounds like Rice Crispy Knee! It is always best to treat this early. You may start to feel the crepitus or grinding, but it doesn’t hurt. Don’t Ignore it! The sooner we treat it, the better results we have. Once you have your Runner’s Knee Treatment, we want to make sure that we eliminate the cause. If this happens when running or other exercise, have someone check your form. That way you can continue to have a long healthy pain free life! Contact us for Chondromalacia Patella

FAQs

It is not a hoax. Prolotherapy was standardized in the 1950’s and has undergone rigorous clinical trials investigating if it works and how it works. Prolotherapy has been proven to be effective in many cases and is supported with scientific research.
With any injection, there are risks. The provider must be qualified and understand how prolotherapy works and the structures around what they are injecting. That being said, the ingredients in a prolotherapy solution are safe and side effects are rare.
No, unfortunately Prolotherapy is not covered by insurance. You can use an HSA or Flex Spending account though.
Absolutely! One of the most common injuries I treat, and get the best results with, is SI Joint pain. Prolotherapy helps to rejuvenate the SI joint and strengthen the ligaments that stabilize the low back and SI joint. Prolotherapy in very effective in treating this, especially post-partum and other low back injuries.
Yes, prolotherapy has been proven to help with arthritis. It can offer years of relief, but since arthritis is a degenerative condition, you will want to incorporate proper movement exercises to help to slow the progress of the arthritis. Proper nutrition will also be key.

Prolotherapy has been proven to help with knee pain. Many studies tracked results for 2 – 2.5 years still demonstrating relief from their treatments.
Most cases require 3 injections about 2-3 weeks apart. After about 10 days following the third injection, we want the patient to start increasing activity and see how the area feels and assess the healing. For more severe cases like bone on bone arthritis or full thickness tears of tendons or ligaments, up to 6 injections, 2-3 weeks apart are needed. Each treatment takes 30 – 45 minutes.
Prolotherapy injects a concentrated dextrose solution in to an injured part of the body to help it heal faster. The nature of the solution results in a dull ache for 48 to 72 hours. You will not be sedated, and you will be able to perform light to moderate activity. You can use a warm compress if needed, but most people find the discomfort tolerable.
