What is the 'bump' in Osgood Schlatter's disease?
« on: March 09, 2003, 12:17:21 AM »
Hi Everyone,
I have Osgood-Schlatter's Disease in both of my knees and I know that the bump is supposed to be there but I was wondering, because I heard someone call it something before, what is the bump called?  And I know that the bump is caused by something separating, does anyone know what?
   Thanks
                                          Michelle

I have maltracking and malalignment problems, Osgood-Schlatter's disease and will be having bi-lateral releases this year, most likely over the summer but I'm hoping sooner.  I am 14.

The bump is called the tibial tuberosity or tibial tubercle and is where the patellar tendon attaches to the tibia bone. Here is an article to help you -

Click on the X-ray to see a good picture -

The condition is known as a 'traction apophysitis' - this means 'a condition where there is unusual pulling stress on a growth plate or tendon attchment'.
