Patellar tendinitis is an injury to the tendon connecting your kneecap (patella) to your shinbone. The patellar tendon works with the muscles at the front of your thigh to extend your knee so that you can kick, run and jump. Patellar tendinitis, also known as jumper's knee, is most common in athletes whose sports involve frequent jumping — such as basketball and volleyball. However, even people who don't participate in jumping sports can get patellar tendinitis. For most people, treatment of patellar tendinitis begins with physical therapy to stretch and strengthen the muscles around the knee. (from www.mayoclinic.com)
- Tight leg muscles
- Uneven leg muscle strength
- Misaligned feet, ankles, and legs
- Shoes without enough padding
- Hard playing surfaces
- Chronic diseases that weaken the tendon
Shock wave therapy machine for patellar tendinitis
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy Education is the latest web resource for low powered radial or soft shock shockwave education and tutorials. ESWT is based on both text and video files here you will find all of the information you need to provide the latest in Physiotherapy, Physical therapy, Osteopathic, Chiropractic and Medical treatments using radial shockwave therapy. From reviews of ESWT radial machines to real ESWT radial treatments showing real results ranging from bony heel spurs and Achilles tendonitis right through the lower limb and up to shockwave of the hand.
ESWT seems to be a safe and promising treatment for patellar tendinopathy with a positive effect on pain and function. Based on current knowledge it is impossible to recommend a specific treatment protocol. Further basic and clinical research into the working mechanism and effectiveness of ESWT for patellar tendinopathy are necessary. Patellar tendinopathy is a common chronic overuse injury of the patellar tendon based on failed tendon regeneration. Several conservative and surgical treatment options are used, but based on the present literature the most appropriate and effective treatment is unknown. ESWT is used for the conservative treatment of several chronic tendinopathies, including patellar tendinopathy.
