Simple quadriceps stretching (statically bringing ankle via flexed knee toward buttocks while standing ) with help alleviate the pain and inflammation from patellar tendinitis. Physical therpay may help with this. Nsaids may also be of benefit. Limiting the activity that caused the tendinitis is also important to obtain efficient healing.
