Chondromalacia patellae

Chondromalacia patellae (also known as CMP) is inflammation of the underside of the patella and softening of the cartilage.
Chondromalacia patellae is a term sometimes treated synonymously with patellofemoral pain syndrome. However, there is general consensus that patellofemoral pain syndrome is a term that applies only to individuals without cartilage damage, thereby distinguishing it from chondromalacia patellae, a condition characterized by softening of the patellar articular cartilage.
The cartilage under the kneecap is a natural shock absorber, and overuse, injury, and many other factors can cause increased deterioration and breakdown of the cartilage. 
The cartilage is no longer smooth and therefore movement and use is painful.
While it often affects young individuals engaged in active sports, it also afflicts older adults who overwork their knees.
