Patella Tendonitis


#1

I have had tendonitis in both my patella tendons for quite a while. It gets most agrivated when I stand on hard surfaces, especially my kitchen floor. Does anyone have any experience with how to repair this without going for surgery?


#2

Get Trigger Point Therapy done and learn where the trigger points are so you can do it yourself...


#3

Might actually be patello-femoral pain syndrome (aka chrondromalacia). Have you had an actual disgnosis?

In the mean time, make sure you're wearing some sort of reasonable footwear when you're standing on hard surfaces.


#4

How does that differ from tendonitis?
