Osgood-Schlatter disease is a common cause of knee pain in growing adolescents. It is an inflammation of the area just below the knee where the tendon from the kneecap (patellar tendon) attaches to the shinbone (tibia).
Osgood-Schlatter disease most often occurs during growth spurts, when bones, muscles, tendons, and other structures are changing rapidly. Because physical activity puts additional stress on bones and muscles, children who participate in athletics — especially running and jumping sports - are at an increased risk for this condition. However, less active adolescents may also experience this problem.
In most cases of Osgood-Schlatter disease, simple measures like over-the-counter medication, and stretching and strengthening exercises will relieve pain and allow a return to daily activities.
Our teen exercise programme will educate, strengthen and stretch giving the ability to manage this condition through the adolescent years into adulthood. Click here for information on the Teen classes.
The exercises are designed to prevent further injury during sport, and ensure the joints are protected at all times
Osgood-Schlatter disease causes pain at the tibial tubercle — the bony bump where the patellar tendon attaches to the tibia.
