An overuse condition, where the attachment of the quadriceps (quads) tendon to the upper pole of the patella (kneecap) becomes painful.
The word tendinopathy infers that there is some disorder of the tendon, but does not imply any specific cause. So a quadriceps tendinopathy means that there is a disorder of the quadriceps tendon.
It is the same thing as quadriceps tendinitis, but the word 'tendinopathy' is preferable.
