Patellar Tendonitis

What is patellar tendonitis?

Patellar tendonitis also known as Jumper’s knee Causes pain in the knee due to injury of the patellar tendon which connects your kneecap (patella) to your shinbone (tibia) as a result of frequent running, jumping and changing direction. Patellar tendonitis symptoms are pain at the front of the knee just below the kneecap, with some tenderness, swelling and stiffness. Knee pain running, and knee pain bending are especially produced. Untreated patellar tendonitis can deteriorate further and potentially lead to patellar tendinopathy or patellar tendon rupture.

Patellar tendonitis treatment

Your physiotherapist will physically assess and test painful movements and muscle strength to grade your patellar tendon injury, use hand on physiotherapy, shockwave therapy, dry needling, and taping. Provide and advise patellar tendon exercises via our rehab exercise prescription software Salaso. Prescribe orthotics, knee supports, patellar tendon strap and foam roller and resistance bands.

Client Testimonials

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.

I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!

Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.

Chronic Achilles tendinopathy was limiting my ability to progress my marathon training and I knew that I had to tackle it properly to allow it to heal. Although it was frustrating to step back from training, I am now running painfree and hoping for a marathon PB
