Treating Osgood-Schlatter Disease in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Osgood-Schlatter disease is an overuse injury that occurs due to inflammation over the point where the patellar tendon attaches to the tibia (shin bone). It most commonly affects adolescents during growth spurts and particularly affects those young kids that participate in certain sports and are very physically active.

Symptoms

Symptoms include knee pain, which becomes worse with activity, swelling, and tenderness below the kneecap.

Treatment

Once the diagnosis has been made treatment is aimed at treating the pain and swelling as most of these conditions go away by its self when a teenager’s bones stop growing.

If you are experiencing knee pain, weakness of the knee, swelling of the knee, or stiffness of the knee, give us a call 972-250-5700 or make an appointment now.
