If you feel discomfort and pain under your knee cap or if you have tenderness in that area, you may have chondromalacia patella. This condition makes it difficult to sit with bent knees, walk up and down stairs, and even drive—activities we do every day. To learn more about chondromalacia patella, read our library article, “Symptoms of a Painful, Activity-Limiting Knee Injury: Chondromalacia Patella.

If you live in South Dakota and you are experiencing pain associated with chondromalacia patella, call a Sioux Falls personal injury lawyer for help. A chondromalacia patella injury often is caused by trauma to the knee. This may be a result of a slip and fall, an accident at work, or even a motor vehicle crash—and another party may be at fault for your injury. 

To determine whether you have chondromalacia patella, a medical professional will diagnose the pain in the knee using the following:

  • X-rays
  • CT scan
  • MRI

If it is determined that you are suffering from chondromalacia patella, your treatment may include:

  • Pain-relieving medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Knee brace
  • Arthroscopic surgery
  • Realignment surgery

When your injuries are caused by an accident, you should not have to bear the burden of trying to recover while dealing with the finances related to your chondromalacia patella. Call Zimmer, Duncan & Cole, LLP, to speak with a South Dakota personal injury lawyer about your claim.
