In brief: Tenderness
Patellar tendinitis causes pain and swelling in the front of the knee.
People with patellar tendinitis will have pain when pushing directly on the patellar tendon. Patellar tendinitis is diagnosed based on a detailed history, physical exam and xrays performed by an orthopaedic surgeon, or sports medicine specialist.
