Definition

Osgood Schlatter Condition; Osgood-Schlatter"s Disease

Osteochondrosis, Tibial Tubercle; Schlatter Disease;

Osgood-Schlatter condition (formerly known as Osgood-Schlatter’s disease) is a painful condition characterized by tiny, microfractures of the bony bump in the lower leg bone (tibia) where the ligament from the kneecap (patella) is inserted into the tibia; The bump is known as the tibial tubercle; It is a disorder of the early teens, especially during a growth spurt, more likely to affect young men than young women, especially athletes of either sex who are active in games requiring substantial running and/or jumping; It is a common, transient, short-term disorder, also called an overuse condition, that usually requires only rest and restraint from further strenuous activity for a relatively short period of time before it heals itself-----------[NORD 2005]---------
