Rehabilitation Guidelines for Patellar Tendinopathy

  • Patellar tendinopathy is characterized by localized pain at the inferior pole of the patella.
  • The condition is caused by the intensity, frequency, and volume of patellar tendon loading exceeding the body's capacity to recover and adapt.
  • Inflammation is not the primary driver of the condition, so rest and ice are not the main focus of rehabilitation.
  • The goal of rehabilitation is to find a "goldilocks" level of loading that keeps symptoms tolerable during and after activity.
  • Exercise is a key component of rehabilitation and should be performed for three or more months to improve function and tolerance to various activities.
  • Adjunct treatments, such as corticosteroid injections, platelet-rich plasma, and shockwave therapy, are not well-supported by research and may not provide long-term benefits.
  • Foam rolling, massage, and icing can be tried as low-cost and low-risk options, but they should not take away from the main goal of increasing function.
  • Patellar tendinopathy takes time, patience, consistency, and dedication to a structured rehabilitation plan.
  • Squat progressions, split squats, step-downs, and single-leg seated knee extensions are recommended exercises for loading the patellar tendon.
  • Slow and controlled repetitions with a specific tempo, such as a 3-second descent, 1-second pause, and 3-second ascent, are recommended during exercise.
  • Stage 2 of rehabilitation includes jumping, landing, plyometrics, and exercises that prioritize a faster rate of loading.
  • Rehabilitation should be tailored to individual circumstances and goals, and not all stages may be necessary for everyone.
