Pes Anserine Tendinopathy or Bursitis has similar symptoms to medial knee ligament injury. However, treatment of the symptoms and proper rest may solve the issue.
What is it?
Pes Anserine Tendinopathy or Bursitis is the inflammation of the pes anserine tendon, the attachment point at the tibia bone of the semitendinosus, sartorius, and gracilis muscles or the inflammation and irritation of the anserine bursa that sits beneath this tendon.
Common Signs & Symptoms:
Common symptoms include pain on the medial side of the knee, swelling in the knee, tenderness with the application of direct pressure, and an increase in pain when using stairs or contracting the hamstring muscles.
Assessment techniques involve evaluating pain levels and location, testing for strength and range of motion limitations, observing swelling, and collecting a patient history of activities leading up to injury.
