Clicking on one of the conditions on the left provides an in-depth, detailed look at what is happening in the knee. For example, clicking on Osgood-Schlatter Disease, describes it as “a common overuse condition causing inflammation of the tibial tuberosity” in teenagers.

This section discusses the diagnosis, symptoms, treatment, and long-term consequences.
