Jumper's Knee

Jumper’s Knee

Patellar tendinopathy- Jumper’s Knee – is a very common condition affecting the general population as well as athletic populations. The prevalence in some sports such as volleyball can be as high as 50%. People who partake in other jumping and landing sports are also at the same increased risk factor as volleyball players. Rest, anti-inflammatory medications, and specific exercises under the supervision of a chiropractor are advised. If a conservative plan of care fails to yield the desired results, then other options may be considered such as extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT).
