As an adolescent, I participated in all of the athletics that I could—volleyball, track, basketball, soccer, dance. Because of this, I was forced to participate in hours of practices a day. I genuinely loved all of the activities I was in, so I didn’t mind the extensive practices unless they involved running. I hated running. It wasn’t because I was out of shape or lazy; no, it was because I had undiagnosed Osgood Schlatter’s disease making it extremely painful for me to run. My knees would always hurt while running and for many hours afterward.
Since cardio training is a crucial part of most sports and therefore practices, I ran nearly every day. After struggling with the pain for several weeks and ice alone not really helping, I noticed other symptoms of Osgood Schlatter disease, such as muscle tightness despite stretching. When another one of Osgood Schlatter symptoms showed up as a knob on the bottom of my knee, I finally gave in and went to see my doctor.
