I'm 21 and diagnosed with Osgood Schlatter disease. Is it possible for a adult of my age to get the disease? If it is possible, how should I treat it?

Unusual: That condition usually implies an inflammation/ injury to the area where the patellar tendon inserts on the proximal tibial growth plate. In a 20 year old, your growth plates are probably pretty well closed; but you may more likely have a patellar tendinitis which produces similar symptoms and is treated similarly. Read more
