NW Orthopedic Spokane Knee Pain

Patella Tendon Rupture

What is a Patella Tendon Rupture?

A patella tendon rupture occurs when the tendon that holds the patella (the kneecap) to the tibia tears and splits apart, allowing the patella to slide upward. This causes pain and an inability to straighten the knee.
