Inflammed tendon: Chronic inflammation of the patella tendon, commonly known as "jumper's knee". This is typically considered an overuse injury but can be exacerbated by hamstring tightness. Typical treatment options consist of rice, antiinflammatories, physical thearpy, counterbrace supports, massage, injections.
