The conservative approach to treating patellar tendinitis aims to reduce strain on your tendon and to gradually build up the tendon's strength.
Your doctor may suggest that you avoid running and jumping and recommend physiotherapy to stretch the tendon and quadriceps with the aim to returning to your previous level of intensity in your exercise. Medications to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation may also be given.
A patellar tendon strap that applies pressure to your patellar tendon to distribute force away from the tendon may be given to relieve pain.
