What is the root cause of your injury? Acute injury, tight muscles, other? You should be able to go up and down stairs with babies...... If the cause were tight muscles, the cause is probably still there and it could be worse as it depends on your lifestyle and current activity level. Most injured people don't deal with underlying posture issues or find physicians who have the specific knowledge to diagnose posture issues.
I had anterior pelvic tilt for many years, despite a lot of tennis, and did not know it. 5 weeks of stretching the rectus femorus and it went away.
I don't know much about this website or patellar tendinosis but it says anterior pelvic tilt can lead to patellar tendinitis due to tight muscles. Consider this cause as just one possibility until you can confirm a diagnosis and find a cause. Be sure to look at the great video, the 1st one, on the anterior pelvic tilt page. Very entertaining presentation and descriptions. Conditioning stretches that are designed to lengthen a healthy tendon - especially the advanced stretches on this website - may farther injure injured tendons so wait until you can see a Dr.
Thanks for the website, great stuff, im gone try some exercises right away. I dont think that my tendonitis has anything to do with hip anterior pelvic tilt. Im pretty sure this is how i got my tendonitis, i was typically in the evenings sitting infront of the computor or tv, the babies would start crying on the second floor, i would then take some very explosive jumps up the stairs to tend to the babies quickly without any kind of warmup of course. Had i not played tennis for a few weeks after i started feeling the sympthom to beginn with i might not have had any more problems. But as things are now ive had an inflamed tendon for well over 6 months now and i realise this is not gone be easy, but im willing to try just about anything. I have heard about massage, anyone know it its good, i tryed a little myself but it only seemed to make things worse, dont know if i did it right though. Cortison shot? Heard pros and cons about that, anyone? //Arvid
