Expert Physical Therapy for your Patellar Tendonitis, NYC
Runners and athletes who jump are particularly prone to patellar tendonitis. It’s estimated that 20% of those who do sports involving jumping develop the condition. But patellar tendonitis isn’t the sole province of the physically active. Those of us who aren’t physically active enough can also develop the condition, due to weakness in the quadriceps and hamstrings.
If you have burning, warmth or even swelling in the lower portion of one or both of your kneecaps, you may have patellar tendonitis. Pain when rising from a low, seated position and when the leg is extended are also indications that the condition may be present. What your patella (kneecap) is telling you is that the connective tissue in your tendon has been injured. The cause may be chronic stress from running or jumping, or even poor flexibility in the upper leg. If this is the case, you may require treatment for patellar tendonitis.
At Back and Body Medical, our award-winning treatment and therapy are complemented by advanced diagnostics to establish that you have the condition. Our team can then assemble a personalized program of evidence-based treatments to return you to full mobility.
