Helping heal your child’s knee pain

Pain in the front part of the knee is a very common symptom in children. The knee is the largest joint in the body and where most growth occurs.

Your child athlete may have a condition called Osgood-Schlatter’s disease, which technically is a pain associated with rapid height growth during a time of intense physical activity.

Osgood-Schlatter’s isn’t actually a disease, though. You can’t catch it from or give it to someone.
