HOW CAN I RELIEVE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT CAUSED BY PATELLAR TENDONITIS?
Patella tendonitis refers to the pain in the front part of the knee, where the kneecap is located.
This condition commonly affects younger, males (aged 15-30), who regularly engage in sports that can repeatedly stress the patella tendon such as volleyball and basketball.
Common symptoms of patella tendonitis include stiffness, swelling and pain.
