Patellar tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendon connecting the knee bone, or patella to your shin bone. The natural treatment for this is the same as for other connective tissue inflammation.
Inflammation is caused by trauma to the area. The trauma can be from just walking all day and having an underlying tendency to get an inflammation. Our bodies use inflammation to heal. It is a natural process, the problem is when the inflammation does not stop.
Chronic inflammation can be caused by magnesium, vitamin or enzyme deficiencies. Your body needs nutrients to heal itself. Taking glucosamine, bromelain and rubbing Boswellin cream on your knee are usually enough to treat this problem.
Any type of overuse, such as jumping, or just walking a lot wearing shoes with little arch support, can cause trauma to your body. Once you have the tissue damage, even if it is small, you need to treat the inflammation that is caused.
Natural remedies are easy to use and do not normally cause side effects. Glucosamine sulfate will help your body build the tissue back up and also is a natural anti inflammatory.
