Patellar Tendinitis Medical Definition: Inflammation of the patellar tendon (ligament). The patellar tendon is actually a ligament that connects the patella (kneecap) to the tibia.
Causes: Overuse, often times due to extensive jumping or running, can cause tiny micro tears in the patellar tendon. This can lead to inflammation and soreness.
Symptoms: Localized tenderness at the point of insertion where the tendon meets the bone.
Recommended Treatment: R.I.C.E. - Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Reduce activity to promote healing. Strengthen surrounding muscles with a professionally recommended program. Apply Ice for 10-15 minutes after each workout to reduce inflammation and pain. A proper stretching routine is highly recommended pre and post workouts. As with any orthopedic injury, a consultation with a sports medicine professional is recommended.
