Knee Tendinitis

About

Knee tendonitis is a common injury or inflammation of the tendon that connects your kneecap to your shinbone. Your pain may be mild or severe. Patellar tendonitis comes from repetitive stress on the knee, most often from overuse in sports or exercise. The repetitive stress on the knee creates tiny tears in the tendon that, over time, inflame and weaken the tendon.
