Jumper's knee

Jumper's knee is a chronic insertional injury of the posterior and proximal fibres of the patella tendon, where they insert into the inferior pole of the patella.

Many authors1 equate jumper's knee to the adult form of Sinding-Larsen-Johansson disease (see that article for more details). Some rather suggest that jumper's knee is a mid-substance patellar tendinitis 2.
