Quadriceps tendonitis or better yet quadriceps tendinosis or quadriceps tendinopathy is a common sports injury. It affects jumpers, runners and activities requiring acceleration and deceleration. Chronic micro trauma to tissues turns into thickening and weakness of the tendon. Over time the person has pain, swelling, tightness and difficulty running, jumping and squatting.
Treatment should focus on improving tissue mobility, breaking down adhesions, improving circulation and strength. Ice and anti-inflammatories are not helpful for chronic tendon injuries.
