Osgood-Schlatter Disease (OSD) is a common pediatric knee problem that often affects active/athletic youngsters between the ages of 10 -15

Stress from the powerful quadriceps muscle inflames the not yet fully developed tibial tuberosity

Kids typically complain of pain just below the knee along the top of the shin

OSD is a self-limiting condition that typically last between 1-3 years

Most kids respond well to local therapy (rest, ice, decreased activity)

Occasionally…symptoms are so severe that a cast is applied to limit motion until the tuberosity totally ossifies
