Patellar tendonitis is inflammation of the patella tendon (the tendon below your knee cap). It is primarily due to repetitive trauma. It is common to see in late adolescences/adults that perform running, jumping, or kicking sports. The most common sign is pain in the front of the knee that occurs either after activity or during activity.
How can Natural Health Chiropractic help? Instrument assisted soft tissue can decrease the formation of scar tissue and promote healing. Acupuncture can assist with the management of pain and support healing. Rehabilitation can strengthen the muscles, stretching can lengthen and relax tight muscles which will reduce the occurrence off re-injury. These are just a few of the ways that Dr. Falkner can help.
