Patellofemoral Chondrosis

The patella is found in a groove n the femur called the trochlea. Damage to the articular cartilage in this area is known as, PF Chondrosis. PF Chondrosis can occur due to trauma such as a direct impact to the front of the knee or overuse. The cartilage begins to break and tear resulting in a rough surface of the knee joint. Kneeling, squatting or knee extension during workouts can cause trauma. Obesity also contributes to this condition.
