Generally, if it's that tendon it's overuse.

Rest, ice, massage

No, I'm asking if it's on the tendon?

If it's not then it's probably not overuse.

It's possible that your muscles are tight too causing pain. ART/foam roll/massage quads would be good as well.

I can't really tell what your picture is pointing at. It's too vague.

Quad stretches work.


All this is just random guess work unless you can provide more accurate information, or actually go to a professional.

I think a lot of knee pain around the patellar tendon is due to shin angle and not keeping the quad muscles active during a squat. Maybe try some box squats and see if you still get the pain, as they allow you to greatly reduce shin angle and make you sit back into the squat more. Just an idea.

Poor recruitment of the hamstrings (knees too far over toes -- not enough "sitting back") leading to some maltraction of the patella. Certainly a possibility.

tendon damage isn't as likely at the top of the knee as any other part of the knee. i had a problem about like this when i started upping my front squatting, its probably a tight muscle or some.......it just went away after awhile with plenty of icing and foam rolling. although it might be quite a bit different from mine since my knee is screwed up do to soccer.

Same here - for me, this is a clear early sign that I need to take a couple back-off days.

i find that if i backed off to get rid of all the discomfort that i couldn't build up any work load. i think u just need to make sure the pain isn't pain that tells u, u need to stop or completely damage area

Take a week off, do some relaxed stretching of all leg muscles along with massaging the lower body, and try again.

More than likely, your quads are super tight. I have the same problem, and find the above do wonders for it along with smart training!!!
