Dr. David Graybill
Orthopedic Surgery

In brief: P/T & NSAI

Pain in the patellar tendon is usally an overuse problem. The mainstay of treatment is pt or home exercise, antinflamitories & bracing .
However 14 years of pain is not typical. If ypu have not seen an orthopedist, i suggest you do and you may benefit from an mri. Occasionally there is a surgical problem present tesponsible for pain in the anterior knee.Good luck.
