Patellar Tendon Tear
A patellar tendon tear is an injury to the patellar tendon, the structure that connects the kneecap (patella) to the shinbone (tibia). The condition occurs when the quadriceps muscle is contracting while the knee is forcefully straightening. Symptoms range from small tears that make it difficult to walk or participate in daily activities to large tears that cause disabling injury. Treatments include surgery and physical therapy to regain full knee function.
