Patellar and Quadriceps Tendonitis - Also called jumper's knee. This condition occurs as a result of overused or tight quadriceps (front thigh muscles). Stress and friction affect the patellar tendon which can then become irritated and/or damaged. This is common among athletes who play on hard surfaces.
Chondromalacia Patella Syndrome - When the cartilage under the surface of the patella breaks down as a result of abnormal patella tracking, resulting in pain that may radiate to the back of the knee. Pain is greatest on the inner, lower part of the knee.
Osgood-Schalatter Disease - As the quadriceps contract, especially in growth as adolescents, the patella tendon is pulled where it attaches to the shin bone (tibia). Pain at the top of the shin may be felt, which may last for several weeks.
Dislocation - (Patella Subluxation) occurs when the knee cap (patella) partly moves out of place as a result of the knee cap being pushed too hard, or the quadriceps or patellar tendon being pulled too hard.
Knee Strain - A mild injury to tissue or structures, such as tendons in the knee.
Knee Sprain - A moderate injury to tissues or structures, such as ligaments in the knee.
