Ive had insidious onset (6 months) patellar tendinosis for the last 2-3 months (diagnosed) which I developed over the course of about 5 months before that.
Flexibility and quad strength were not the issues here, it was purely the amount of jumping, squatting, dealifting,o-lifting i was doing per week (6-10 sessions)
I took a full week off on physios advice. Then I proceeded to start a unliteral sqauts program to maintain/build quad strength.
I’ve now been seeing a sports doc as well, I am about to have Xrays and Ultrasound to check for bone spurs etc, this is probably not the problem tho.
It is looking more and more like they might want to give me some cortizone to create a window for more treatment and corrective action.
I’ve heard bad things about cortizone, but i have heard that deca would be better. Would a low dose of this be preferable to cortizone? Or should both be used?
Somebody has offered me a course of deca/sustanon (20 weeks, 250mg/week of each). Is this a better road to tread down?
