Request an Appointment with an Orlando Health Physician

Whether you have a strain or a complete or partial tear of your quadriceps tendon, we will develop a personalized treatment plan that may include a brace, crutches and physical therapy. If you have a quadriceps tear, we may recommend minimally invasive surgery to repair your tendon.


We will review your medical history, evaluate your symptoms, assess your level of tenderness and your range of motion and strength. We may order X-rays, an MRI or an ultrasound to diagnose the extent of your injury. Treatment may include pain management, immobilization, ice and compression, physiotherapy, surgery and a rehabilitation program.
