    Default Patellar Tendonitis


    Patellar tendinitis (patellar tendinopathy, also known as jumper's knee and Sinding-Larsen-Johansson disease), is a relatively common cause of pain in the inferior patellar region in athletes. It is common with frequent jumping and studies have shown it may be associated with stiff ankle movement.
