I have patellar tendanitis and was wondering if anyone else has dealt with this. I am still able to run and lift but can squat anymore. When i do run or squat afterwards I'm in considerable pain. Any suggestions.

I've heard that it will go away for some hours when you put warm,not hot, things on your knee

Thanks for the suggestion. I've tried heat and cold and nothing seems to help. I just try to ignore it a push through.

I deal with Patellar tendinitis now for more then 10 years and haven't found anything that would held me.
I always loved running from 10 k to Marathon but I had to give it up it was to much pain.
But i still try it every now and then and hope.

Early stages may be treated conservatively using the R.I.C.E methods.
Rest
Ice
Compression
Elevation

I use damp warm towels wrapped around my knee while I eat breakfast everyday I sit till its room temp heat it up again wait for it to be room temp then I work out I take breaks as needed to reapply the warm towel and rest. after work out follow R.I.C.E. rules
