Jumper’s Knee Treatment and Surgery in Wayne, Parsippany & Paramus, NJ
Jumper’s knee involves inflammation of the tendon at the front of the knee that connects the patella and the tibia.
Jumper’s knee involves inflammation of the tendon at the front of the knee that connects the patella and the tibia. This issue generally develops as an overuse injury from activities that involve running, jumping, and loading the knee. Patients will feel soreness directly over the tendon and may feel pain with squatting, running, and any kind of explosive knee movements. Rest is a very important part of recovery from patellar tendonitis. Anti-inflammatory medications can be helpful for pain relief, but should not be taken long term. A focused physical therapy can be very beneficial in the rehabilitation process as well.
