Petellar tendon pain and wraps....

Im trying to decide on the best course of action to treat patellar tendon pain that returned as strength took a jump.
Im not concerned that the issue is stemming from form rather that its the tendon not being able to repair quickly enough between training sessions. Causing a cumulative effect.

After some homework, I find 2 possible solutions.
1 is to use knee sleeves or wraps
2 is to back off on weight and add volume to each set. Increase the warmup prior to work sets.

My concern with option 1 is that it could simply mask the pain and lead to an actual injury down the road, but I'm not sure if that concern has any merit.
My concern with option 2 is that my legs respond best to lower reps and heavier weight.
That being said, some work is better than none if I end up injured and can't train for some time.

Im thinking there has to be another option that still allows me to make progress and im simply not thinking of it or don't know about it.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Dealing with injuries is not me strong suit.
Option #2 because option #1 will only make things worse!

I fought Osgood Schlatter patellar tendon pain for years. I found that stretching the knee, using knee sleeves, and going full range of motion in the squat eliminated the pain.
I olympic lifted for 25 years and about 2 of those years had terrible knee pain until I figured out how to fix it.
