    Therapeutic aspects

    Doctors typically begin with less invasive treatments before considering other options, such as surgery. Over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) or naproxen sodium (Aleve, others) may provide short-term relief from pain associated with patellar tendinitis. A physical therapist may also recommend specific exercises and stretches to strengthen the muscles and tendons. This may help relieve pain, Autologous blood injection, or platelet-rich plasma injection may be performed and is typically successful though not as successful as high volume saline injection.
