What are the best Patellar Tendinopathy Exercises
The names Patellar Tendinopathy, Patellar Tendonitis, and Jumper’s knee are all used interchangeably. Patellar Tendonitis is a very painful injury that causes sharp pain at the front of the knee, typically where the Patellar tendon attaches to the patella. It is less commonly found in the mid-portion of the patellar tendon. If you reach down to the tip of your kneecap, the aspect closest to the foot is where the patellar tendon attaches to your kneecap. If it is painful to press there and you get pain with jumping and running activities, there is a high likelihood that you have an issue with your patella tendon.
