Patellar tendinitis is an injury to the tendon connecting your kneecap (patella) to your shinbone, is a relatively common cause of pain in the inferior patellar region in athletes. Patellar tendinitis, otherwise called jumper's knee, is most regular in competitors whose games include frequent jumping— for example, basketball and volleyball. In any case, even individuals who don't participate in jumping games can get patellar tendinitis.
Meeting a medical practitioner
In most cases, you can start treating a tendon injury at home. To get the best results, rest the painful area, and avoid any activity that makes the pain worse. Apply ice or cold packs for 20 minutes at a time, as often as 2 times an hour, for the first 72 hours. Keep using ice as long as it helps. Do gentle range-of- motion exercises and stretching to prevent stiffness. Have your biomechanics assessed by a physiotherapist. Undertake an Eccentric Strengthen Program.
