The patella tendon attaches to the tibia (lower leg bone) at the tibial tuberosity (bony prominence below the kneecap). Osgood-Schlatter’s disease results from excessive traction on the tibial tuberosity, causing an inflammatory response at the attachment.
Please consult with your medical professional for a complete diagnosis and treatment plan.
