Osgood Schlatter’s is an inflammation of the tuberosity of the tibia, which is present during growth. In Osgood Schlatter, pain occurs just below the knee at the attachment of the thigh muscle to the shin bone. This area is irritated, overburdened and a small lump can be felt. Osgood Schlatter is caused by overburdening. This complaint often occurs in children (boys) between 9 and 16 years of age, who are growing and play a lot of sports. The pain is especially noticeable during or after an activity and is localised under the kneecap.Osgood Schlatter’s is a troublesome condition for which it is often advised to rest and to avoid prolonged, intensive sports (running, jumping, sprinting and cycling).
