Not too bad: Thankfully, it does not suggest anything being torn a pre patellar bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa that is just superficial to the patellar tendon. The patellar tendon tendonopathy describes abnormality of the tendon itself. One way to describe it then is that you strained your patellar tendon as opposed to tearing it. It would be managed non operatively, sometimes using a brace. ...Read more

A local cortisone/steroid injection into the area can eliminate the problem or certainly reduce the pain. ...Read more

Surgery last option: Before jumping to surgery, most cases similar to what you describe should have a serious trial of at least six weeks of physical therapy to build up the muscles and tendons of the rotator cuff.

Several issues: Chondromalacia means you have abnormal cartilage in the inside part of your knee where the kneecap (patella) sits. Everything else means you have fluid and/or inflammation in various places around your knee. A bursa is a sac that usually only has a little bit of fluid in it but can get inflamed and be painful. Popliteal cyst = baker cyst, which is accumulation of fluid in the back of the knee. ...Read more
I had multiplanar mri&impresion:chondromalacia of medial trochlear cartilage. Moderate popliteal cyst with mild joint effusion. Pes anserine bursitis, prepatellar&intrapat bursitis? What's the treatment? Thanks
Chondromalacia: Chondromalacia is damage to the cartilage surfaces of joints. In the knee it's similar to the wearing away of tire treads. This can cause inflammation which can produce increased fluid in the knee (effusion). If you have minimal pain and no locking, strengthening your thigh and leg muscles is recommended. Icing and anti inflammatories and pt can be helpful. Arthroscopy is recommended with locking. ...Read more
