​Jumper’s Knee

Mar 01, 2023

Jumper’s knee is a condition that affects the tendon that connects the kneecap (patella) to the shinbone. It typically occurs in activities that involve repetitive jumping or running, such as volleyball, basketball, or track and field.

The repetitive stress on the patellar tendon causes it to become inflamed and painful and in some cases, micro tears or degeneration can occur. This makes it really difficult to perform activities that involve bending the knee or jumping.

Symptoms of jumper’s knee can include pain and tenderness in the front of the knee, as well as swelling, and stiffness.
