Knee Tendon Bursitis - "Goosefoot"
The incidence of knee tendon bursitis is highest among:
• Middle-aged women with obesity
• Young athletes who participate in sports that require abrupt side-to-side motions or cutting. Such sports include basketball, tennis, and soccer.
• Older adults with arthritis
• People with flat feet
• People with bowlegged knee deformity
A doctor diagnoses knee tendon bursitis by examining the knee and reviewing your medical history. Your doctor may order medical imaging tests, such as ultrasound or MRI scans to confirm the diagnosis.
