it looks to me like you have other things that put a lot of impact on your legs. climbing does not do this unless you are jumping off things i think easy climbing should be fine for now, the movement might even help a little

I doubt that ordinary sports play would have caused any serious damage at the age of 15, but if your knees are sore, and your tendons are inflamed, then that's probably a good sign to take things easy for a while. I agree that climbing probably won't do any harm so long as you don't push it, but I'm no doctor (nor do I ever want to be).

as i recall from my running days, tendonitis is solved only by cutting your workouts WAY back. If this is self diagnosed tendonitis, i would suggest you see a doc. Tendonitis doesn't go away easily. However, it could be a much less severe problem that, as orgasmicclimb suggested, can be treated with icing (20mins immediately after workout).

If you want, private message me more about the details of your injury, workout load, etc. and I can probably give you some better guidance.

what happens with tendonitis is the sheath that holds the tendon swells and causes friction on the tendon itself. eventually causing abrasions or even to rupture.tendons will get better if you ice for 20min then off for 20 on for 20.treat with ibuprofin. I take 800mg. 4x aday when climbing hard. with tendonitis anywhere, time heals.unfortunately you need to take time off. I have it bad in my elbow and am on my 5th cortisone shot. On to surgery in the fall....good luck on yours
