The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between tendon pain, tendon ultrasound abnormalities, disability, weight-bearing ankle dorsiflexion (WBAD) and trunk and lower limb kinematics during a landing task in elite athletes with and without patellar tendinopathy. Twenty-four elite basketball and volleyball athletes, with or without patellar tendon pain, were included in this study.
