Osgood-Schlatter Disease


Osgood-Schlatter disease is a common musculoskeletal condition that affects adolescents, characterized by inflammation and pain at the tibial tuberosity, where the patellar tendon attaches to the shinbone. It is often caused by repetitive stress on the growth plate during periods of rapid growth and is more prevalent in those who participate in sports or activities involving running, jumping, and quick changes of direction.
