In brief: Age

This is inflammation of a muscle attachment point on the tibia in adolescents that are physically active.
Reducing the amount of leg work with sports (running, lifting, etc.) can help it calm down as can use of antiinflammatory agents like ibuprofen. Rarely a kid will need a soft splint and crutches until walking can resume.As the kid gets older, growth stops as does osd.
