Osgood Schlatter Disease
How do you cure it???
Standard medical advice is to treat knee with RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation).
Some cases of Osgood Schlatter disease
• Growth spurt – the condition tends to affect growing children. Affecting boys are often aged about 13 to 14 years, while affecting girls are often aged 10 to 11 years.
• Exercise – active children, especially those in athletics and sports, are at increased risk.

What is in the name???
This condition is named after Robert Bayley Osgood (1873-1956), an American Orthopedic surgeon and Carl B. Schlatter, (1864-1934), a Swiss surgeon who described the condition independently in 1903.
Symptoms of Osgood Schlatter
• Pain in one or both knees
• Pain when straightening the knee joint or full squatting.
• Pain on running, or going up and down stairs.
• Pain that hurts less with rest.

Who is it most common for???
Osgood Schlatter disease generally occurs in boys and girls aged 9–16. Although boys are more likely to develop the condition, many girls involved in sports — like gymnastics or soccer — develop it too.
What does it look like???
Osgood Schlatter disease is one of the most common causes of knee pain in kids who play sports, usually only one knee is affected, but both can be. There may be a slightly swollen, warm, and tender bony bump at the top of the lower leg, about 2 inches below the kneecap.

Hello my name is Pari, and I will be talking to you about Osgood Schlatter disease.
• Gender – boys are more affected than girls, perhaps this is because boys usually play more risky sports.
• Injury – around half of all children with the condition report a prior knee injury.
• A swollen tibial tuberosity
• Red and inflamed skin over the tibial tuberosity.
• Quadriceps muscles that can sometimes lose strength and bulk.
