Patellar tendinitis

Patellar tendinitis

Patellar tendonitis is a condition that affects the patellar tendon. This tendon absorbs most of the pressures of movement, especially when jumping or running. As a result, the patellar tendon could become injured and inflamed. Symptoms include a stiff feeling along the knee, especially when running downhill or going down a flight of stairs. Patellar tendonitis usually goes away without treatment; worsening symptoms merit consultation.
