Patellar tendinopathy (Jumper’s Knee) is a very disabling disease, rarely heals spontaneously and mostly affects athletes performing sports with frequent jumps. More than 1/3 of the athletes affected by this disease do not return to sports for 6 months, 50% of them are forced to retire from sports and 15 years later they still feel discomfort. The treatment options are many and include: eccentric exercises, extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), injections (platelet rich plasma, autologous blood, sclerosing drugs), needling, and surgery (arthroscopic or open). The goal of this review is to identify the appropriate treatments for the jumper’s knee.
