Patellar Tendinitis Explained

Understanding Patellar Tendinitis

Patellar tendinitis is a common overuse injury affecting the knee, particularly prevalent among athletes who participate in sports that involve a lot of jumping. The condition is caused by repetitive stress on the patellar tendon, which leads to inflammation and pain.

Symptoms of Patellar Tendinitis

The main symptoms include:

  • Pain in the lower part of the kneecap
  • Swelling in the knee joint
  • Pain that increases with physical activity
  • A feeling of weakness or instability in the knee

Causes and Risk Factors

Factors that contribute to the development of patellar tendinitis include:

  • Frequent and intense physical activity that puts stress on the knees
  • Sudden changes in activity intensity or surface
  • Poor training techniques or inadequate stretching
  • Muscle imbalances or weaknesses that put additional stress on the tendon

Diagnosis and Treatment

Diagnosis of patellar tendinitis starts with a medical history review and physical exam and may include imaging studies. Treatment aims to reduce symptoms and strengthen the surrounding muscles to prevent recurrence. This typically involves:

  • Rest: Avoiding activities that cause knee pain.
  • Ice Therapy: Applying ice to reduce pain and swelling.
  • Compression: Using an elastic bandage or a patellar strap to provide extra support to the knee.
  • Elevation: Keeping the knee raised above the level of the heart to reduce swelling.
  • Physical Therapy: Strengthening and stretching exercises to restore function.
  • Sports Massage: To improve flexibility and blood flow.

Prevention

Preventive measures include proper training and conditioning, using appropriate sports equipment, gradually increasing the intensity of workouts, and incorporating strength training to improve muscle balance and joint stability.
