Anyone got any advice on patella tendonitis ? Ive had it for years started from playing football all the time back in the day. I was told its because ive got flat feet and the shock absorbers i should have in my arches arent there so it puts all the pressure on my knees. I get pain from squatting,jumping,push pressing and over doing moving events. I dont want to give up strongman so i try to train around it by strict pressing more often than pushies and going easy on moving events most of the time. I got some thor double ply knee sleeves and they worked great for a while but now the effects are wearing off. I was looking at the blue rehbands instead ? What do you guys think,anyone got the same problem ? Thanks for any advice

I've had similar problems. Get some lifting shoes and wear stability control trainers for overpronators, or get some orthotic insoles though I couldn't train in mine and ended up the supportive trainer route. I use 5mm Vulcans and sometimes wear them round the house or sleep with a tubigrip on when my knees ache. Hope this helps

Try radial shock wave therapy av had too sessions and I have notice a significant pain drop in just 2 weeks.
Stretch loads, foam role, sports massage. Work on hip abductors and adductors
Do box squats instead of normal squats and warm up for ages on a bike,
Deep heat help me a bit and ice as soon as uv finished
Oh and I moved to sl dead instead normal deads and stopped push pressing all together
Cissus does help a bit and so does forever freedom
And like someone else said get some insoles to stop pronation of ur feet
Hope any of this helps pal

Foam roll everything from hips down, especially hams and ITB.
Stretch lots, especially after workout.

Squat deep, no partials or to box, go deep (you've already noticed that small motions of the knees hurt the most so go deep (feel the stretch Happy )

Lol got to disagree tho, the over stretching of the tendon will make it worse, I agree with partial squat tho (dont do them) But a slow negative to a box will actually strengthen the tendon but I would say start these when the pain is under control and not just to jump into them.

Also do single leg essentric squats but again not deep, also if u have access to a bosip ball ( forgive the spelling) that really helped me too

Not really an answer, but i just carry on. I roll and stuff, but once im squatting and moving im fine.

It hurts when im driving home (bent knees) but then it goes away and im okay again. Stretching, rolling and icing has to be the sensible answer, but if i iced everything that hurt, id get pneumonia Happy

Get a pair of heavy sleeves from strengthshop. The bumblebee ones are nice Happy.

I warm up with them on and a wrist wrap tight over the actual tendon (specifically with squats). I leave it on long enough until the leg starts to tingle and then take the wrist wrap off. Sounds weird but its similar to the voodoo treatment mwod recommends. No pain at all then for the rest of the session and it feels good for days.

Other things that have helped are heavy ibuprofen loading for 3 days out a 4week cycle (ingested with lots of milk). This makes a massive difference and lasts well longer than the three days.

Icing doesn't help me but I do stretch a lot! Quads, hips, calves and ankles.

Also lots of band resistance exercises to activate the quads properly, like a leg extension with a hard contraction and pause at t top. Sets of 8, as many as I can be bothered with.

Also some single leg hamstring work.

Lots of options!!
