What can we do to help you?

Our doctors are able to prescribe you pain medications. Physiotherapy may be prescribed to teach you to decrease the stress on the patellar tendon and to alter jumping and running biomechanics. Our physiotherapists may also teach you taping techniques as well as stretching and strengthening exercises for the muscles above the knee.
