Does wearing patellar straps all the time help heal patella endonitis?

In brief: Treatment options

My suggestions to patients with patella tendonitis consist of rice, anti-inflammatories (oral/ topical), quad stregthening, lower extremity stretching.
I also may suggest ice massage, or counterforce bracing. If the above list does not help then you may want to consider discussing prp with your physician based on some recent literature (http://drmarkgalland.Com/category/knee/).
