Dr. Larry Benson is treating Osgood Schlatters Syndrome, also known as jumper's knee.
This problem stems from breaking a bone in childhood or adolescence.
This causes pain and inflammation at the anterior knee. It is typically caused by repetitive running or jumping during a growth phase.
Anti-inflammatory meds can help, but do not help much over long periods of time. It may take 6 months to a year for symptoms to completely resolve.
