Osgood Schlatter Disease

A common cause of adolescent knee pain in active 9 - 16 year olds

Osgood Schlatter knee pain in children and adolescents

Exercise, such as running, jumping and kicking, during a child's growth years can lead to inflammation at the point where the Patellar Tendon attaches to the shin bone (Tibia). In a growing child the attachment is around the cartilaginous growth plate and the soft bone around it. This softness leaves the area susceptible to irritation and damage if the loads are sufficient.

The resulting pain and tenderness can be debilitating, requiring a reduction in activity, which is not always easy when your child wants to be constantly on the go.

Reduce Pain, Keep Active

An Active650 Patella Strap has a double layer that cradles and protects the area where the tendon joins with the bone. This support reduces the stresses and irritation to the growth plate, allowing quicker recovery and higher levels of pain free activity.
