Tendon injuries

Type of Tendon Injuries

The knee's extensor mechanism facilitates the extension of your lower leg and consists of the quadriceps tendon, patellar tendon, and patella. Injuries to the extensor tendons, such as the patellar and quadriceps tendons, can occur due to forceful contractions or falls. High-grade disruptions of these tendons often require surgical intervention to restore the ability to extend your knee effectively.


For tendon injuries, similar to sprains and strains, the recommended treatment involves the RICE method: rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Following this, incorporating gentle exercises can alleviate pain and enhance mobility. In cases of severe tears, surgical intervention may be necessary for optimal recovery.
