Patellar Tendonitis, Patellar Tendinitis
What is it?
Patella Tendonitis is a painful condition affecting the patellar tendon in the kneecap area. This condition is most common in an aging athlete whose in involves in "jumping" sports such as basketball, volleyball and jogging. A person experiencing patellar tendonitis will have particular difficulty when running down hills.
Occasionally other conditions may be associated with patellar tendonitis including diabetes, gout, para-hypothyroidism. Other conditions which can be a cause of anterior knee pain are commonly confused with patellar tendonitis. These conditions include quadriceps tendonitis, synovial plicae, chondromalacia, patello-femoral subluxation and hyper-pressure, fat pad impingement or Hoffa's syndrome and patello-femoral arthritis.
When treating patella tendinitis rest the area, expecially avoid the particular activity that produced the condition. Anti-inflammatory medication, regular cold compression, hamstring stretching and physiotherapy are all helpful.
If the strain was minor, their body may be able to heal the tendon fibers normally. Unfortunately, this is not the usual result because the injured tendon is being used instead of rested. Because of the stress on the tendon, their body heals the injured patellar tendon fibers by binding them together with fibrotic adhesions or scar tissue. This is done in an attempt to prevent further damage to the injured area. It is a normal protective response of their body.
The trick to any tendon injury is getting it to heal quickly to prevent re-injury and minimize scar tissue formation - something Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ is great at! Even with optimum healing there is always less elasticity in a previously injured tendon. The trick is to make sure you heal this the best you can, that way your chance of reinjury down the road is much lower than average - which is well over 50%. Otherwise, persistent symptoms will occur, eventually leading to corrective surgery
BFST™ - Using Your Body's Natural Healing System
Your body can heal itself! In fact, your body starts healing itself the moment you are injured and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen. Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that is good inside you. It carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies. Proper blood flow is essential to healing. Unfortunately, when you injure your body you stop moving and the swelling sets in. That means your vital blood flow can be reduced to a trickle! If you want to heal quickly, you need to keep your blood moving and that's where Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™, or BFST™, comes in.
Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ promotes the flow of blood through the injured area without the need to exercise your already damaged tissue. You can really feel it work. Within moments of applying an Inferno Wrap™ you can feel the healing sensation and the increase in blood flow. During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, your injured area will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective. With BFST™ your injury is constantly being fed with healing, nutritious, oxygen and energy filled blood. This is exactly what your body needs to heal.
