Pain below kneecap: Achy pain in your patellar tendon especially when you jump [aka jumper's knee]. The patellar tendon is the large tendon between your kneecap and your leg or shin bone. It is about three finger breadths long. Patellar tendonitis, or inflammation of the tendon, will be painful to firm touching. It is not pain behind the kneecap, or pain at the joint lines, or pain of the tibial turbercle.

Stretch, ice, bike: Do a warm up with straight leg raises, then stretch your quadriceps muscle, bike for 15 minutes and finally ice. Be cautious going down stairs.
