Landing biomechanics in patellar tendinopathy

Do male athletes with patellar tendinopathy have different landing biomechanics?

Male athletes with symptomatic patellar tendinopathy show lower patellar tendon loading during landing than asymptomatic and healthy participants. On the contrary, there were no differences between groups in terms of load imposed by physical activity. The researchers therefore question which parameters should be monitored to determine loading patterns in athletes with patellar tendinopathy.
