Osgood Schlatter Condition Directory
Osgood Schlatter condition (formerly known as Osgood-Schlatter's disease) is a painful condition characterized by tiny fractures of the bony bump in the tibia, a bone in the lower leg. The bump is known as the tibial tubercle and lies just below the kneecap. It affects teenagers, especially during a growth spurt, and athletes of either sex who do sports that require a lot of running or jumping. It is a common, temporary condition that usually requires only rest before it heals itself.
