Jumper's Knee

Jumper’s Knee (also known as patella tendinopathy) is characterized by inflammation of the patella tendon which unites the quadriceps muscles. This tendon connects onto your knee cap (patella) then your shin bone (tibia).

Causes of this condition are usually related to sporting injuries, linked to rapid contraction of the quadriceps muscles, as the individual lands for a jump causing overstrain of the tendon. If this motion is repeated it can result in localized inflammation.

Symptoms include tenderness over the tendon, swelling, pain on running/ jumping and walking and pain when bending and straightening your leg.
