Chondromalacia referenced in TMS Books

Knee pain is often blamed on a condition known as chondromalacia. It is a roughening on the underside of the kneecap, diagnosed by X ray and, in my experience, painless. Once more we have a situation in which an X-ray abnormality is blamed for pain because the doctor is unaware of the existence of TMS. Pain may also be attributed to an unstable patella, or that old standby, arthritis.

"Chondromalacia" is...demonstrable on X ray, which is no doubt the reason why it is routinely blamed for knee pain...this is a disorder that never, in my experience, causes pain. Invariably the examination discloses evidence of TMS tendonalgia of one or more of the many tendon and ligaments that surround the knee. The pain in these cases is not knee pain, strictly speaking, for it is from outside the joint.
