Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That means some inflammation of the patellar tendon attached to your knee cap.

Playing sports can cause this commonly.

There is risk of torn tendon and instability of knee cap.

Hence better to address it with knee brace, physical therapy for 4 to 6 weeks.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
