Os-Good Schlatters

Categories

Os-Good Schlatters disease causes pain in the adolescence. Your child will usually feel pain at the front and bottom half of the knee. Pulling on the growth plate by the muscles of the thigh is what causes the pain.

A growth plate is an area of the maturing skeleton where the bone has a line of cartilage where the growing occurs.

The growth plate is a weaker spot in the developing bone. If excessive force is applied to the area it can then lead to inflammation and pain.

Running, Jumping, Squatting, Skipping, and especially navigating stairs typically worsens the pain.

Management for this condition varies depending on the severity of the pain, age, and activity level.

Our Podiatrists will perform a Biomechanical assessment to determine what the appropriate treatment should be.
