Sir i had triamcilone acetonide 40 (steroid)injection in my upper tibia tendon to reduce inflammation and i have read that it inhibit rejuvenation and leads to cell atrophy. So can one time steroid injection on ligament/tendon cause irreversible serious damage??

I’ve recently just got patellar tendinopathy. it started out as what I thought was a light sprain and I continued to work the knee. This eventually led to tendinosis as I noticed that my patellar tendon has gotten noticeably thicker compared to my healthy knee. This started early last month and I honestly have no idea what to do. I’ve been doing some isometric exercises everyday which started a week ago but the pain has not improved.

Hello sir, I wanted to ask, in January 2020 i had Osgood Schlatter surgery at my left leg. My orthopaedic doctor said that the surgery was perfect and nothing wrong with my left leg after the surgery. But what makes me wondered is, why my left leg still hurts until now? Its already about 9 months after i had the surgery. I can tell that the hurt was at the tip of the tendon meet tibia … My doctor just said that i need to build my left leg quadricep muscle because it is weak and almost every week i did quadricep workout at my gym, i can do squat and leg extension exercise but my left knee hurts. However, i cant do lateral squat for my left leg because it hurts and my leg keeps shaking… Do you think i have to continue doing the same workout or change to another workout? (Sorry for bad english)

Hey great video! Watched the other one you made for patellar tendon pain as well.I wanted to ask should i ice the tendon after the workout ?Also, (speaking for the other video you made) what do you mean exactly about loading an exercise so a person can do 6 reps of that exercise ?How much should be the load or better how intense the exercise should feel?Thank you btw this really helped me ! I can do 3 sets of 15 (bodyweight) in the bulgarian split sguat with no pain .What should i do to continue ?(sorry for any typos)

frank fossi says:

Lovely video content! Sorry for chiming in, I would love your thoughts. Have you ever tried – Taparton Lard Destroying Takeover (google it)? It is a good one off product for finding the trick to deal with knee pain minus the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my old buddy Taylor after many years got cool success with it.

josh says:

when the tendon becomes degenerative and they're is nerves and blood vessels that are sensitive to load and compression would this produce symptoms such as burning amd tingling?
