If you have knee patella tendonitis (tendonopathy) then try this easy exercise to help ease your pain. Michael, a myPhysioSA Senior Physiotherapist in Payneham Adelaide, demonstrates this exercise that you can get started doing right away.
Patella tendonitis is common in sports people , runners and walkers. It is usually painful just below the knee cap, on the patella tendon. It usually gives morning pain and stiffness which eases once warmed up.
This is the first exercise to start, then once the pain starts to settle over a few days to weeks, then a strengthening phase needs to be started. Stay tuned for the next video in this series.
