Statements of Principles

Chondromalacia patella - Running or jogging Factor

The SOP requirements here are:

Reasonable hypothesis:
  • Running or jogging on average at least ten kilometres per week for at least the one month before the clinical onset/clinical worsening of chondromalacia patella.
Balance of probabilities:
  • Running or jogging on average at least 20 kilometres per week for at least the one month before the clinical onset/clinical worsening of chondromalacia patella.

Therefore, if the first signs or symptoms of CMP developed more than a month after the last period of service, CMP could not possibly be related to any running or jogging during that service.

Preliminary questions [42018]

42014 there is some evidence that running or jogging may be a factor in the development of the condition under consideration.

41994 the veteran ran or jogged the amount as specified in the Statements of Principles requirements at some time.

42020  the veteran has established the causal connection between running or jogging and VEA service for chondromalacia patella.

42021   the veteran has established the causal connection between running or  jogging and VEA service for the clinical onset of chondromalacia patella.

42023  the veteran has established the causal connection between running or jogging and operational service for the clinical onset of chondromalacia patella.

or

42024  the veteran has established the causal connection between running or jogging and eligible service for the clinical onset of chondromalacia patella.

or

7334     the clinical onset of the condition under consideration occurred after the end of the veteran's last period of VEA service.

7335     the condition under consideration permanently worsened.

42022   the veteran has established the causal connection between running or jogging and VEA service for the clinical worsening of chondromalacia patella.

42025  the veteran has established the causal connection between running or jogging and operational service for the clinical worsening of chondromalacia patellae.

or

42026  the veteran has established the causal connection between running or jogging and eligible service for the clinical worsening of chondromalacia patella.

Clinical onset and operational service [42023]

41991 operational service made a material contribution to the veteran's running or jogging for at least ten kilometres per week.

42000 the running or jogging for at least ten kilometres per week for at least one month before the clinical worsening of the condition under consideration commenced after the onset of the chondromalacia patella.

Clinical worsening and eligible service [42026]

41998 eligible service made a material contribution to the veteran's running or jogging for at least 20 kilometres per week.

42010 eligible service made a material contribution to the veteran's running or jogging for at least 20 kilometres per week for at least the one month before the clinical worsening of the condition under consideration.

42002 the running or jogging for at least 20 kilometres per week for at least one month before the clinical worsening of the condition under consideration commenced after the onset of the chondromalacia patella.
