In brief: Manage Pain, stretch

Are you asking for a definition/description or treatment options? The most common treatments for osgood-schlatters include rest/ activity modification, ice, compression, anti-inflammatories, massage and therapeutic stretching that focuses on the muscles of the upper leg (hamstrings & quads).
Individuals with osgood schlatter may partipate in activity to limits of pain tolerance without concern.

In brief: Osgood Schlatter

Osgood-schlatter is a condition involving a portion of the tibial growth plate at the insertion of the patellar tendon.
It is associated with tight quadriceps (especially the rectus femoris). There can be a painful fragmentation that occurs at this area. The best treatment is stretching, nsaids and rice. It resolves when the growth plates close.
