Osgood-Schlatter Disease (OSD) is a painful knee condition that affects active adolescents. Often occurring during a growth spurt and more commonly affecting boys, OSD is associated with high impact physical activity such as running or contact sports.
Doctors believe the tendon attaching the tibia (shinbone) to the quadricep muscles (front of thigh) become tighter during growth spurts, causing pain, inflammation and even micro-fractures to the shinbone.
OSD is known to heal itself over time with appropriate care like stretching and strengthening of the affect area. Bodyassist’s range of support products may alleviate discomfort and provide additional support and compression to assist with swift recovery from injury.
