In brief: Strenghten legs

Osgood shlatter's is typically an inflammation to the growth plate at the top of the tibia consistent with running and jumping in teenage athletes when the growth plate is still open.
I see it a lot in basketball. While there is no way to avoid it totally, quad, hamstring strengthening will help and ice and nsaids will help post activity.

In brief: RICE

Osgood schlatters is a traction injury of the patellar tendon (the one on the bottom of the kneecap) to the top of the shin bone.
When the injury or inflammation occurs on the kneecap side it's called sinding larrssen johansen syndrome when it's on the shin side it's osgood schlatters disease. The treatment is rice (rest ice compression and elevation) occasionally an infra patellar strap is useful.
