What is Osgood-Schlatter Disease?

Osgood-Schlatter Disease is characterised by a painful, swollen lump located just below the knee typically seen in young athletes. Demanding activities such as running and jumping place the area from the patella tendon to the tibial tuberosity (bony lump located at the top of the shin bone) under repetitive traction or stress. The continuous traction force placed on the point of tendon insertion causes the immature bone of the tibial tuberosity to become inflamed, painful and swollen.
