Osgood—Schlatter disease OSD is inflammation of the patellar ligament at the tibial tuberosity apophysitis. Risk factors include overuse, especially sports which involve frequent running or jumping. Pain typically resolves with time.
Osgood-Schlatter disease is a painful condition causing inflammation just below the knee. Common in adolescents during growth spurts, Osgood-Schlatter disease can affect adults if not properly assessed and treated. Aptly named after Robert Osgood a U.
There is a lump under my knee at the top of my shin that looks like Osgood-Schlatters. The only thing is that I am 30 years old and I thought that Osgood-Schlatters only happened to young people. Is it possible that I had it and only notice it now because I am more physically active? Osgood Schlatter's disease is a condition where inflammation and partial separation develops at the junction between the patellar tendon and the tibial bone.
Osgood-Schlatter disease is a common cause of knee pain in growing adolescents. It is an inflammation of the area just below the knee where the tendon from the kneecap patellar tendon attaches to the shinbone tibia. Osgood-Schlatter disease most often occurs during growth spurts, when bones, muscles, tendons, and other structures are changing rapidly.
View image. Osgood-Schlatter disease is a problem with the patellar tendon, which is the tendon that attaches the kneecap to the shinbone. Tendons are strong bands of tissue that connect muscle to bones.
The apophysis is the portion of the epiphysis which is attached to a tendon and subjected to tensile forces. In the knee, this is the tibial tuberosity where the patella tendon inserts. Continued traction from the quadriceps can lead to a repetitive injury to the growth plate causing pain and swelling in the region of the tuberosity.
Most often seen in adolescents, Osgood-Schlatter's disease is an overuse injury that causes pain and swelling around and below the knee. In most cases, symptoms of Osgood-Schlatter's disease are relieved through a combination of conservative treatment options; however, surgery may be necessary if pain symptoms persist. Osgood-Schlatter's disease is an overuse injury to the growth plate of the tibial tubercle just below the knee. It is commonly seen in growing, active adolescents between the ages of 11 and 15 years, and often coincides with growth spurts.
Osgood-Schlatter disease is a condition characterized by a painful inflammation bony knob or spur located under your kneecap patella. The cause of Osgood Schlatters is irritation on your growth plate tibial tuberositywhere your patellar tendon attaches to your shinbone tibia. As their quadricep muscle stretches, it pulls on their patellar tendon, which connects their kneecap to their shinbone.
