We have 3 exercises to help with Knee Tendonitis – the knee swelling culprit that affects simple and everyday activities like walking up and down the stairs, climbing, kneeling, and sitting.

We use our knees for practically everything; from playing sports, walking up and down stairs, squats, cycling, lunging into a yoga pose, sitting, the list is endless. Overtime, the constant pressure on our feet start to affect our knees.

It may feel like this “achey” knee pain that will never go away. That “achey” feeling is “knee tendonitis”, also referred to as Patellar Tendinopathy or Jumper’s Knee. There may also be swelling and/or pain in the area below the kneecap (patella). It is caused from repetitive movements such as jumping, landing and hopping too hard on your feet.

For those of you who dabble with “self-diagnosing”, we would recommend treating your knee pain by using proper footwear, a knee brace, taping, or applying ice after activity. It is also important to focus on lower body mobility and stability exercises with an emphasis on improving movement control.
