Re: Partial Tendon Tear

I had a MRI on my elbow/arm and The results were. A partial high grade tear of the extenes tendon. I see an ortho doctor in a few weeks. But I have a family to worry about and I need to know is this something I am going to need a surgery for? How likely is that? I have been off work 2weeks already and I just am having anexity issues over this. I do a very repadative job almost always 60 hrs a week.

Helps strengthen the kneecap mechanism by applying pressure on the tendon above the kneecap as well. This tends to reduce the forces of the quadriceps on the patella tendon and erosion of the under surface of the kneecap due to a possible misalignment of the quadriceps (Q-angle).
