Disclaimer: I am not medically trained and the advice in this article should not be taken as medical advice. I simply speak from my experience with knee problems from jump training and alleviating their effects to continue training. Make all decisions that are right for your special situation.
With that out of the way, let's get into the juicy stuff! I will tell you what I did to cure and alleviate my jumpers knee and tendonitis:
1.) Take Jump Shock With Your Hips, Not Your Knees
This is the Golden Rule when it comes to keeping your knees healthy in the long-term. New jumpers and even veterans sometimes do this wrong.
When you jump you are putting several times your body weight in pressure on your knees. Over time this can be really stressful on your knees.
It is a common beginner tendency to want to lean forward upon landing a jump. This is not only normal, but it also gives a false sense of control of direction.
The best way to prevent this is to simply train yourself from the beginning on the correct form for jumping.
Overtime this form will become ingrained into your jump and you will always land with you but out and over your knees only slightly.
2.) Use Products That Aid and Restrict Knee Motion
This is a temporary and very viable solution to jumpers knee for the very active.
Elastic bandages and knee braces are good things to use after the fact of knee injury because they support your knee and prevent future pressure related injury.
Now, of course, these are not sustainable fixes to someone who does something as rigorous as jumping but they certainly do help more wear and tear.
My biggest advice when it comes to knee pain is to gauge it against your activity level.
If you are doing a jump program as challenging and aggressive as the Jump Manual then you will want to look for more sustainable solutions to your knee pain since braces can only go so far before more injury.
At such a point I'd certainly recommend you stop all intense physical activity that puts such pressure on your knees and consider...
3.) Get Heaps Of Rest When Injured
For stage I to stage III jumpers knee this is your best option when it comes to a sustainable solution to keep you jumping for years to come.
No matter what you have to resist overtraining because in the long-term it will come back to bite you later.
I know that you may be someone who hates rest days but this is just one of those things that you have to do to keep yourself jumping long-term.
Normally it takes me about 3-5 days of complete rest for my knees and body to feel 90%-100% again after being is stage I or stage II jumpers knee.
