TOP 5 EXERCISES FOR PATELLAR TENDONITIS

Our physical therapists search the internet for the best exercise videos available. Clinician reviewed and approved. Enjoy.

#1

Quadriceps Stretch

The quadriceps are located on the front of your thigh. When tight they add strain to the patellar (kneecap) tendon, which can lead to inflammation and pain.

#2

Hamstrings Stretch

The hamstrings are located on the back of your knee(s). Tight hamstrings place excessive strain on the knee joint as a whole, often exacerbating patellar tendonitis.

We're partnering with the world's best gyms to kick joint pain's butt.

#3

Quadriceps: Foam Roll

While a bit uncomfortable, this technique is very effective at loosening the quad musculature. Reducing strain/pain associated with patellar tendonitis.

#4

Quadriceps Strength

The quadriceps are some of the most important functional muscles in the body. When weak, pain and instability in the knee often occurs.

#5

Hamstrings Strength

The gluteus medius is located on the outer hip. It may seem strange to target the outer hips for knee pain, but research shows strengthening this region is key to reducing meniscal torque, inflammation and pain.

BONUS

Knee Icing

Inflammation associated with tendonitis is the main cause of stiffness and pain. Icing correctly is beneficial for reducing localized swelling and facilitating healing.
