Named after Dr. Robert Osgood and Dr. Carl Schlatter, Osgood Schlatters Disease typically occurs in children 10-15 years of age. Bones sometimes grow faster than the tendons and muscles. This can create stress on certain ligaments or tendons, causing inflammation and pain.
What is it?
Osgood Schlatters Disease is a condition where pain and inflammation occur in the patella tendon, close to the tibial tuberosity.
Common Signs & Symptoms:
Common symptoms include swelling in the knee, knee pain, and sometimes, greater prominence of the tibial tuberosity.
Assessment methods involve evaluating pain location and levels, testing strength and range of motion limitations, and patient report of pain when running or kneeling.
