Osgood-Schlatter Disease is a common form of growing pains or overuse in early adolescence involving the shinbone and the knee. Symptoms like swelling, enlargement of the tubercle and pain are common in kids with many sport activities. Risk sports are soccer, gymnastics, basketball and distance running. Treatment of symptoms isconducted to decrease pain and includes taking some antirheumatic drugs like Advil or Aleve, and wrapping the knee. If the condition gets more painful and gets worse, it may be the best to take rest from activity for several months, followed by a conditioning program. Osgood-Schlatter symptoms may last for 2 to 3 years. However, most symptoms will completely resolve at around age 14 for girls and 16 for boys.
