Patella Tendon Injury

Request an Appointment

Request an Appointment with an Orlando Health Physician

Our sports medicine and orthopedic doctors will assess the severity of your injury and develop a pain management and rehabilitation plan that fits your lifestyle. If your injury is severe, we may recommend surgery.


How we treat your knee will depend on whether you have tendonitis, micro-tears or a complete tear. We may recommend physical therapy with ice, massage, electrical stimulation and ultrasound to reduce your pain and control swelling. We may also prescribe anti-inflammatory medication and a brace or crutches. If you’ve torn your patellar tendon, we may recommend surgery to help you regain full knee function.
