Patellar tip syndrome
The patellar tendinitis (jumper's knee, patellar tendinitis) occurs when the knee-cheek tendon (patella tendon) is irritated by repeated, unfamiliar and / or violent tensile stresses. The patellar tip syndrome is not uncommon in the case of jump-intensive sports (basketball, volleyball, jumping, jumping), activities with many stop-and-go movements (tennis, badminton) or fast changes of direction (football, handball).
Therefore, the complaint is also referred to as a jumper's knee or a runner's knee. The pain is felt in the area of ??the knee tip. Initially, the pain is usually felt only after the stress. In the further course, the pain also occurs during the sport or even during everyday stress, such as for example when climbing the stairs or after sitting for a long time. Here, special bandages, such as the Genumedi PSS knee ligaments, can relieve the patella tendon and reduce pain. Specific exercises help to strengthen the patellar tendon.
