    I was exercising yesterday and went to kneel down on a bench and it caused a slight pain, more a discomfort in my right knee when I kneeled on it. Never had this before but when I checked I noticed a hard lump that feels like bone just below my knee, top end of my shin. It's more or less painless

    Osgood Schlatter's conflicting advice and a mother's view

    First,I don't understand why it's called a 'disease' as one usually associates this term with a virus or similar pathogens. From what I gather it's a developmental problem or maybe a response to the modern age where kids sit around a lot and then have sudden bursts of activity. Most medical sites

    I have had physio when i was younger to build up the muscle but that didnt work. The lump on my knee is painful at times and has not gone away like the doctors said when i was a teenager. I have recently hurt my knee again, but doctors say it is unrelated to OSD. I dont know what else to do.
