Abstract

Patellar tendinopathy is an overuse of the patellar tendon during physical activity and it affects up to 45% of athletes involved in jumping sports. The purpose of this study is to determine if strength, flexibility and various lower extremity static alignments play a role in patellar tendinopathy patients and to determine if clinical measures influence the severity of patellar tendinopathy. Thirty patients with patellar tendinopathy will be recruited to be in this study. Participants are completing surveys of subjective measures of knee function, isometric knee extensor and flexor strength, sit-and-reach, active knee extension, rearfoot angle, navicular drop test, tibial torsion, supine q-angle, standing q-angle, genu recurvatum, pelvic tilt and leg length difference. 7 individuals with patellar tendinopathy have participated male=5, female=2, age=24.9±5.1 years, height=176.0±12.9cm, weight=79.4±18.6kg, anterior knee pain scale=78±3.8, Lower Extremity Functional Scale=65.6±14.9, visual analogue scale for pain= 5.3±2.6mm, activity of daily living scale= 61.9±12.1, Victorian Institute Scale Assessment-Patella=53.9±17.6, Lysholm=78.1±11.1, tegner activity scale=5.7±0.8, average peak knee extension torque=125.9±42.3Nm, Assessment-Patella=53.9±17.6, Lysholm=78.1±11.1, tegner activity scale=5.7±0.8, average peak knee flexion torque=66.1±19.9Nm, sit & reach=32.3±8.4cm, active knee extension=156.3±11.6⁰, rearfoot angle=8.8±2.1⁰, navicular drop=3.3±2.3mm, tibial torsion=17.7±7.3⁰, supine Q-angle=11.8±2.2⁰, standing Q-angle=14.1±5.7⁰, genu recurvatum=2.4±5.5⁰, pelvic tilt=12.1±4.0⁰, and leg length difference=0.3±0.5mm. This study will provides clinicians with beneficial information regarding individuals with patellar tendinopathy’s function, alignment and strength.
