Knee Conditions

Osgood Schlatter’s Disease

Osgood Schlatter’s disease occurs due to irritation to the shin bone from the tendon that attaches to the knee cap. It is most common during times of rapid developmental growth as well as a consequence of repetitive or increased activity levels. The tendon becomes overloaded and stretched and begins to pull on the shin bone, causing pain right below the knee.

Other symptoms noted include:

  • Pain with activity
  • Bony growth at top of shin
  • Swelling and tenderness at the shin
  • Loss of strength
  • Range of motion around the knee

At Apex, a physical therapist will examine your child’s knee and surrounding tissues and create a personalized plan of care.
