PT – PATELLAR TENDINOPATHY (JUMPER’S KNEE)


  • Tendinopathy: is typically used to describe any problem involving a tendon. The tendons can be worn, injured, stretched, and/or torn.
  • Tendinitis: acute inflammation of the tendon due to small (micro) tears (the suffix “itis” indicates inflammation)
  • Tendinosis: non-inflammatory degeneration of a tendon from repetitive strain-injuries without adequate time to heal. Sports Health
  • Patellar Tendinitis . Mayo Clinic
    – Patellar tendinitis is an injury to the tendon connecting your kneecap (patella) to your shinbone.
    – The patellar tendon works with the muscles at the front of your thigh to extend your knee so that you can kick, run and jump.
    – Patellar tendinitis, also known as jumper’s knee, is most common in athletes whose sports involve frequent jumping — such as basketball and volleyball. However, even people who don’t participate in jumping sports can get patellar tendinitis.
    – For most people, treatment of patellar tendinitis begins with physical therapy to stretch and strengthen the muscles around the knee.

  • PFPS: A Quick Reference . Educated Physical Therapist
  • PFPS . Orthoinfo
    – PFPS is a broad term used to describe pain in the front of the knee and around the patella, or kneecap
    – Called “runner’s knee” or “jumper’s knee” it is common in people who play sports—particularly females and young adults—but PFPS can occur in nonathletes
    – The pain and stiffness caused by PFPS can make it difficult to climb stairs, kneel down, and perform other everyday activities
    – Many things may contribute to PFPS. Problems with alignment of the kneecap and overuse from vigorous athletics or training are often significant factors
    – Symptoms are often relieved with conservative treatment, such as changes in activity levels or a therapeutic exercise program

KNEE BURSITIS


  • Knee Bursitis . Orthoinfo
    – Bursae are small, jelly-like sacs containing a small amount of fluid, positioned b/n bones and soft tissues, acting as cushions to help reduce friction.
    – Prepatellar bursitis is inflammation in front of the kneecap (patella)
    – When the bursa becomes irritated and produces too much fluid it swells and puts pressure on adjacent parts of the knee.
    – It is often caused by pressure from constant kneeling or a direct blow to the front of knee
    – Nonsurgical treatment is usually effective as long as the bursa is simply inflamed and not infected
