I am a high jumper and for the past couple of years have had pain on the patella tendon. (tender to touch and hurts particularly on high jump) It was potentially diagnosed as tendonitis or tendonosis and treated purely with 1 legged squats.
In addition I have had acupuncture which made it worse and frictioning. Neither with any success.
Following this I was advised that I had a tight IT band which I have stretched and released pressure on. I generally am fine doing all activities, including heavy weight lifting, but high jump, with the curved run and take off causing immediate pain.
After a hugely disappointing season any advice would be greatly appreciated?
