How can I strengthen or heal my Patellar Tendon? I play basketball for like a few hours everyday, but I cant play to my full potential because my patellar tendons don't seem very healthy, even when the pain is gone. It comes and goes, but I really want it to be gone once and for all right away. Any tips? I don't even jump as high as I could because of this issue, and I don't know how if I can maybe get it strong enough were I can play to my full potential and possible even do intense workouts on my legs.

This is too medical for me to give a full answer on. I would at first advice rest. Jumping alot can put alot of pressure on it.

So you could look into taking some rest of heavy jumping. And trying to teach yourself to jump and landing with good technique.

Are you sure that it is tendinitis?

Many conditions can make pain in and around the knee

First make sure of the diagnosis then have the right treatment .

Your age ; weight ; other medical problems;  ets should be known

Yeah I'm sure. The pain is directly under the knee cap and the little bone. It gets better though.

Is the pain worse when exercising or when resting? If you have unresolved knotting or tightness in glutes or any of the quad groups this can transfer quite readily to the knee. I'd suggest going to a specialist sports injury therapist for deep massage & dry needling and you may find this resolves the issue quite quickly or will guide you on how to proceed.

Ok cool thanks. The pain just goes up and down depending on what I do/how long it is. But it eaither goes away, or hurts bad. I think its getting better though
