Hello, my name is Jimmy. I am not a doctor or
physical therapist. I am just a regular person like you. I have been
playing sports my whole life
and don't ever want to quit playing sports. I made this site
to let people know how I got rid of my
jumpers knee (patella tendonitis), because I
know how HORRIBLE it is to have it. Once you have it, it hurts just to sit
with your knee bent, much less playing your sport activities. I had it for
about 5 years. Well, I finally got rid of it and its been gone now for
over 5 years. Now, both of my knees feel great!
I remember trying everything I could to get rid
jumpers knee (patella tendonitis), and I found
multiple things that helped, including the
Patella Tendon Strap,
Neoprene Knee Brace (with an open knee to keep the knee cap in place),
Great Shoes for MAXIMUM SUPPORT (I wear Nike Air Monarch's, they have Full
Length Air and are awesome to play hard court sports in! FYI, Shoe
Carnival carries these shoes),
Great Insoles, and
Anodyne Light Therapy (read
What is Anodyne Light Therapy). Although these all helped, they did not
give me the total result that I was looking for.
Well, I knew that their had to be
something out there that would help me obtain the results I was looking for.
And their is! I stumbled onto my jumpers knee cure while taking a weight
lifting supplement. It was Kre-Alkalyn EFX a CREATINE
Supplement. I continued to take it and now my
jumpers knee is gone. I might feel a little tendonitis in my knee from time to
time, but only after over-training and its nothing at all comparable to how bad
it used to be. For the most part, I feel 100%. I highly recommend
trying it. When I over-train / play to much ball, I will use the
supplement. The Dosing Guide is on the label below. I am 190 lbs and
I only take one a day (I don't take any on days that I expect to have a big
cardio exercise day such as playing volleyball). I experimented and only
take what I feel my body needs.
Here is my weekly routine.
I play sand doubles for 2-3 hours twice a week. Sometimes 3 times a week
(no creatine for me on those days). I lift weights 2-3 days a week.
My body stays seriously sore (especially my knees!) if I don't take my Creatine.
One Creatine pill a day makes my body's muscles and tendons feel awesome!
But I have found that if I take 2 or 3 a day, I can barely play one measly game
of Sand Doubles Volleyball because I will feel extra fatigued and over heated
quickly! That's why I don't take any Creatine on days I know I'm going to
be playing Volleyball. (I personally don't think its a good ideal to take
anything 7 days a week anyhow.)
Now you know what I found to
work for me. Here is a link to it in case you want to try it out. If
you do, post a comment on the JumpersKnee.net Facebook Page for everyone to see.

Good Thing is, IT'S CHEAP!
Beware that side effects are possible with

any supplement. And always check with your doctor before taking any
- From Creatine and Glutamine I personally experience muscle cramping and found it easier to
over heat. Hurts my cardio performance. (I don't have any problems now
that I keep my doses low and don't take any on cardio days)
- From L-Glutamine at max doses I felt like it made my whole body a little achy.
(I've tried L-Glutamine and Creatine for Tendonitis and I am happier with
Now that my Jumpers Knee is gone,
Training is now my BIG FOCUS. I am getting great results from the
workout. The training is building up my legs jumping muscles which is
helping me with my sports performance and helping to prevent future injuries.
Not to mention, who doesn't want to be able to jump higher. I recommend doing jump
training on a
cushioned / matt floor.

detailed helpful tips
to over come your tendonitis.
I've found that no matter what age you
are the most important thing is to warm up first (I'm not talking about
stretching, I only lightly stretch after I'm warmed up). Start slow and do not
play hard until you are warmed up. Also, do not over train by playing to much at
one time or by playing too many days a week.
You need rest and healing time.
SLEEP is also very important. Sleep has a very anti-inflammatory
affect on your body. Also, when you fall into a deep sleep, your pituitary
glands secrete HGH which is very good for the healing process.
That's why I take a power nap every day! FREE HGH :)
I also wear a neoprene knee brace that has a hole in the center, it offers
compression and helps to heat up the muscles and tendons in the knee area while
also giving support. I have found that if I wrap a pulled muscle or a strained
tendon with an Ace Bandage before I play my sport, it is very therapeutic. I think it offers
support and increases blood flow to the area.
Blood flow is what promotes healing. May sound crazy, but that's why I also sleep
on my stomach so that blood pools towards the knee area, plus my knees are
straight and under no stress while I sleep.
It is very very very important to have
Great Shoes and Great Insoles. Nike makes a shoe called Monarch, I wore
the Monarch 3's for years, now they came out with the
They have Full Length Air! They are so awesome for playing sports, I love
these shoes. I use great insoles for added support even though they're not
really needed with these shoes. I feel like I'm walking on pillows.
I get mine at my local Shoe Carnival.
It is also important to build the muscles in your legs to support your
knees. I use a Stair Stepper. It provides an awesome low impact
workout. I love my
Stair Stepper. I shopped around before finding the one I use.
You can find it in my
Store. Its way cheaper and way better than others in my opinion.
You can also try Anodyne Light Therapy which is an infrared light therapy. It
increases blood circulation deep into the problem area using infrared light.
Blood circulation is what promotes healing. I bought one years ago and I also love it.
There is only one Anodyne Light Therapy out there that I know of that regular
people like me can afford. You can also find it in my
The supplements gave
me the boost that I needed to overcome my jumpers knee and I now maintain good
knees with my training and therapies.
The bottom line is, my knees feel better
now than they did when I was in my 30's (I'm 43 now).
Since my knee's have felt so good for so long
now, I have began to step up my leg training. Its making my legs feel good
and strong. It is very important to build up your legs jumping muscles to
prevent injuries like tendonitis. I am doing the
workout. Plus I'm determined to get my vertical jump back to my personal
best which used to be 37". I know that's not the greatest vertical in the
world, but its respectable for a 43 year old dude.
- YOU MUST NEVER Jump until
you are very warmed up!!!
- When playing a jumping sport on a hard surface, You MUST Wear Quality
Shoes made for Jumping, not Running! Also Add some High Quality Insoles!
- You MUST Do Proper Leg Strengthening/Vertical Jump Exercises! (the
stronger your legs jumping muscles are, the less stress you will put on
your tendons to accomplish your jump) (check out
Manual) (train on a cushioned surface)
- YOU MUST Give Your Body REST, Eat Plenty of PROTEIN and Get Plenty of
- THE HUGE FACTOR in me getting over my Jumpers Knee was the fact that I
I'm 43 and I play a lot of ball and I do not have Jumpers Knee any more.

gone. Read on for more valuable info.

What is Jumpers Knee?
Jumper's Knee (patella tendonitis),
is a relatively common condition that causes, soreness, tenderness
and sharp pain in the front of the knee, just under the kneecap.
The patella tendon is what connects the kneecap to the shin bone.
The tendon, the quadriceps muscle and the quadriceps tendon
are features that allow your knee to straighten out and provide
strength for the straightening motion. The patella tendon is
made of tough string like bands that are surrounded by a vascular
tissue lining that provides nutrition to the tendon.
Jumpers Knee (patella tendonitis)
is caused by overuse and or over straining the tendon. The
patella tendon is put under extreme tension when performing
explosive movements such as jumping, landing, taking off and
direction changing. The common sports associated with this
condition is Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, Track and Field,
Football, and Badminton. Micro tares as well as collagen
degeneration can occur in the tendon if it is left untreated.

> Hi Jimmy
> I'm writing from Denmark to let you know how grateful I am that you shared
your experience. I've had jumpers knee for half a year and it's been killing
me and it got worse day to day. I went to my doctor and he told me there's not
much to do but rest. I went home and searched the internet for more
information. After visiting some more "official" sites I ended on yours and
read your story. Since all the other sites suggested nothing else but rest or
operation, I immediately ordered both glutamine and creatine. I received the
creatine first and tried it. It helped at lot and took away the pain by aprox
60%, but it made me extremely tired and the rest of my muscles hurt, so I
stopped using it. A week ago I received the glutamine and it worked after just
a few days later. It seems to have no side effects and the pain is almost
reduced by 90%.

I've found that no matter what age you are the most important things are

hard until you are warmed up. Also, do not play to many days a week You
need rest and healing time.
I also wear a Tru-Fit knee spandex type knee brace that has a hole in

I cant really remember how long it took for my knee to feel in the high
percent range. Creatine also helps, but you gotta watch taking
because I can tell it kills my cardio endurance when I play sand
But a Creatine and Glutamine combo really makes me feel good. Just
over do either one. Ive recently started taking very low doses and it
I came across your website last night while "googling" patellar tendonitis
treatments. Thank you very much for the info and spreading the word. I too like
you play a lot of sports and am very active. I have had patellar tendonitis for
14 years, the last year it has gotten much worse and developed into patellar
tendonitis. As you well know, it SUCKS.
I have seen a top knee doctor several times, had an MRI, and done lot's of
physical therapy. The friction massage and eccentric exercises help, but the
knee is not nearly as good as I would like. I am very interested in the
supplement that you recommend and I think that I will try it.
How did you hear about how it might help your tendonitis, and why do you think
that it works?
Thank you again very much. I am passing lots of good karma on to you for trying
to help people with this frustrating problem.
I figured out that Glutamine helps tendonitis by
accident. I bought a weight lifting supplement called Anavol. After taking it I
realized that my patella tendonitis went away. After taking the anavol for a
good while, I noticed it started making me jittery ( at least I think it is what
was doing it ) any how, when I quit the Anavol my tendonitis started to come
back. I had a feeling that it was the Glutamine in the Anavol that was helping
my Tendonitis so I started taking Glutamine by itself and my Tendonitis went
away again. Its awesome stuff. I hope it works for you too.
I just ordered 2 large bottles from your link and am
very excited to start taking it as I have been dealing with this problem for so
long. I will email you back in a month or two to let you know how it is going.
Thank you again VERY MUCH for your help!!!
I have been suffering from
Jumperís knee for about 3 months now. I have been struggling to find someone
else who has been through this experience to give me a little motivation as I
constantly think about how much I love to run.
How long did it take you to
fully recover? I have been to physical therapy for about 2 months and I just
donít think that it helps that much.
I got some of
your supplement a few days and Iím taking it religiously now. Hopefully I will
see some change. I will let you know how it turns out.
Just checking on your Jumpers
Knee status. How is the Supplement working for you?
Ha, itís funny
that you ask. You know, I know Iíve never met you, but I think youíve at least
given me a little bit of motivation. My g/f and parents think Iím crazy in
trying so many different types of treatments, but I really think the Supplement
is really helping. Iím taking the Supplement, some vitamins for bone strength
(canít remember the name), and Omega Fish Oil.
strange, but I really feel like I have no pain, which is good. I donít think
Iím ready to start running just yet, but I canít tell you how much I appreciate
Will def let you
know when Iím back at 100%
My personal testimonial
I had Jumpers Knee for approximately 5 years. Now I feel like I don't have
it at all. I play the hardest position in Volleyball (as far as jumping
goes), middle hitter. I have to jump on almost every offensive attack and
almost every defensive play. It doesn't phase me now. My knees feel
great. Its also cool that I can dunk a basketball
again! I was very happy and excited to find something that actually
I'm writing to let you know that
I tried the glutamine that you recommended and I take the recommended daily
I swear I started noticing a difference within 2 weeks. It worked
just like you said it would. I've been taking it for over a month now and
I can't believe my jumpers knee is finally gone! I wish I would have known
about this along time ago. I am going to send all of my friends to your
jimmy at jumpersknee.net
