With a Jumpersknee you suffer from your knee joints running over your knee joint. This knee is running from the tibia towards the kneecap. The patella (kneecap) is interwoven in these knees and it may be that it becomes inflamed. This is called a tendinitis. It is also possible that the knees 'deteriorated'. This is called a tendinose. This creates a so-called Jumpersknee. The Jumpersknee usually develops without any apparent cause, this is called idiopathic.
