Knee joints play an important role in supporting weight, standing, walking and running. The main function of the knee joint is to bend, stretch and support the body along the ankle and waist. The knee is composed of the femur (thigh bone), tibia (shin bone), and patella. These bones are covered with tissues such as ligaments, muscles, and joints.
The contact area between the femur and tibia is covered with cartilage, and the meniscus in the gap between the femur and tibia serves to reduce the burden on the knee.
The most common causes of knee pain are related to aging, injury or repeated stress on the knee. Common knee problems include sprained or strained ligaments, cartilage tears, tendonitis and arthritis.
Patellar tendinitis is an injury to the tendon that connects the patella to the tibia. The patellar tendon works in conjunction with the muscles in the front of the thigh to extend the knee and allow it to kick, run and jump.
Patella tendonitis, also known as jumper knees, is more likely to be common among people who play frequent jumping sports such as basketball and volleyball. However, patellar tendonitis can also occur in people who do not play sports.
Common Musculoskeletal problems - Pain Management
Pain is the first symptom of patellar tendonitis and usually occurs between the patella and where the tendons attach to the tibia. Initially, knee pain may occur only immediately after strenuous exercise. Over time, the pain worsens, and ultimately it interferes with everyday activities such as climbing stairs and standing up from a chair.
Patellar tendonitis is a common overuse injury caused by repeated stress on the patellar tendon. Stress causes a small wound in the tendon, which the body tries to repair. However, as more stress and trauma to the tendons occurs, inflammation causes pain and tendon weakness.
Pain Relief Management & Treatment, Vaccinations, Health Screening, COVID & Allergy Testing, Dermatology Treatments, Minor Surgical Procedures
Safe and effective treatment of patellar tendinitis is shockwave therapy. Shockwave therapy accelerates collagen metabolism in the body and enhances blood circulation, promoting regeneration and repair processes of damaged tissues of bones and tendons.
Shockwave therapy should make a significant contribution to reducing the pain and improving the function of your Patellar tendonitis.
