In brief: Many Possibilities

Prolotherapy typically by itself will cause ligaments to tighten up, usually due to scarring or fibrosis of the ligaments.
However now prolotherapy is used to introduce new blood supply to the area and then many times following it with the prp and/or stem cells in the area can repair the tissue/ligaments by the hopes that the stem cells regenerate the same normal tissue type. Regenexx.Com

In brief: Inflammation

Inflammation of the patella due to overuse or repetitive motion.
Overuse injuries respond best with rest, ice and nsaids. Therapy helps with decreasing swelling and pain as well as improving strength and range of motion.
