Treating Patellar Tendonitis in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Patellar Tendonitis (Jumpers Knee), is a condition characterized by inflammation of the patellar tendon, which connects the kneecap (patella) to the tibia (shin bone). This condition is typically caused by overuse of the knee joint, such as frequent jumping on hard surfaces.

Symptoms

Although each individual may experience different symptoms the most common are: pain and tenderness around and behind the knee cap, swelling, pain with jumping, running or walking and pain over the patellar tendon.

Treatment

The best course of treatment is to discontinue any or all activities that are causing the condition to worsen until the injury has healed. Other treatments may include, ice, NSAID’s, stretching exercises, physical therapy, or use of a brace or support. In more severe cases surgery may be required.

If you are experiencing knee pain, weakness of the knee, swelling of the knee, or stiffness of the knee, give us a call 972-250-5700 or make an appointment now.
