There are many causes of patellar tendinopathy

Patellar tendinopathy can be caused by high-impact physical activity, such as running or jumping, but can also be caused simply by poor posture or incorrect wearing of a shoe. In rare cases, the biochemistry of an individual may predispose them to patellar tendinopathy. It is important to treat this condition early in its course, as management becomes much more difficult if it progresses for too long. Common treatments include chiropractic manipulation and physiotherapy modalities such as stretching and strengthening exercises, massage therapy, and rest/activity modification. A chiropractor can assess the patient’s symptoms and determine the best course of action to successfully manage patellar tendinopathy.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms it is important to consult a medical professional for possible diagnosis and treatment.
