Dealing with Knee Pain

It would be beneficial to lower the intensity of activities to avoid further strain and damage. Activities such as running, jumping or sports requiring sudden changes of direction should be replaced with gentler activities such cycling and rowing. 

The patella is embedded in the tendon of the anterior thigh muscle which causes discomfort when there is tension. Methods such as regular stretching and several 20-minute cold treatments can provide relief.

Once diagnosed professionally, depending on how severe the patellar tendonitis is, you may be recommended to try treatments such as physiotherapy, ultrasound, electrotherapy, shockwave, and manual therapy. These treatments can reduce strain and help the knee joint get used to movement carefully.
