What Works on Pain

Partial Tear: This injury involves tearing of the patellar tendon, but not a complete severance. The treatment for Pure Natural Healing Review this injury is based on the extent of the tear. Minor tears that are considered by the physician to be stable may be treated with a period of immobilization, followed by physical therapy to strengthen the quadriceps and surrounding musculature. Partial tears in which significant tensile strength of the tendon has been lost, and which the physician feels may be at risk for rupturing completely are usually treated surgically.


For those that present to the emergency department or their primary care doctor with a suspected patellar tendon tear, a referral to an orthopedic surgeon is generally the rule. The surgeon will make a definitive diagnosis based on the how the injury occurred, as well as clinical factors such as the location of pain, strength and mobility of the knee, and the patient's ability to bear weight and walk. Complete tears may also be diagnosed with X-Ray, showing a "high riding patella" that is located above the knee joint rather than centered on top of it.A patellar tendon tear is generally considered an acute injury, meaning that it was caused by a specific and sudden event.
