What is the efficacy of eccentric exercises for the treatment of patellar tendonitis? EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER: In patients with patellar tendonitis (jumper's knee), eccentric training results in similar improvements in pain and function compared with normal training, corticosteroid injections, heavy slow resistance training, and surgery, but more improvement than concentric exercises, ultrasound, or friction (SOR: B, small RCTs).
