Patellar tendinopathy is a condition we see commonly in clinic and can cause athletes from many sports a lot of discomfort and frustration.
 
The Patellar tendon runs from the patella (kneecap) to the tibia (shin) and transmits the force from the quadriceps muscle to the lower leg to allow you to straighten you leg against resistance.

There are many novel ways that purport to maximise recovery, but we will focus primarily on one of the simplest and cheapest recovery modalities – sleep.

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is a 36-40mm long band of fibrous tissue that connects the femur to the tibia. Its function is to control stability when performing twisting actions.
 
The Cruciate ligament is usually not required for normal daily living activities, however, it is essential in controlling the rotation forces developed during side stepping, pivoting and landing from a jump.

Do we factor in other stresses in our lives?

Athletes training for an autumn marathon will be at a critical stage of their preparation right now. Most will be targeting a half marathon a few weeks out from their marathon as part of their final preparations. They may use their half marathon time to project their potential marathon time. For athletes who are not familiar with their lactate threshold and not training at the appropriate intensity, this could lure the athlete into a false sense of security that could potentially end in disappointment.
