Osgood Schlatters disease is a common condition that affects roughly 20% of adolescent athletes. (Learn more about Osgood Schlatter disease in children and its symptoms.) It is caused by irritation of one’s growth plate by the patellar tendon due to physical activity while growth is underway. One’s thigh muscles can pull the patella tendon that connects the kneecap to the shinbone away from the shinbone, causing pain, inflammation and sometimes bone growth that forms a knob.
Treating Osgood Schlatters involves tacking down the problematic tendon with an Osgood-Schlatter disease knee brace like this or with a patellar band or strap.
Patellar tendonitis, sometimes referred to as jumper’s knee, is an injury stemming from overusing or overloading the patellar tendon, resulting in small micro-tears to the patellar tendon, causing tenderness and inflammation.
