In brief: Rapid growth

Osgood-schlatter disease generally occurs in children nine to fourteen years old who have experienced a rapid growth spurt.
About twenty percent of teenagers who are active in sports get it, compared with about five percent of nonathletes. It usually occurs with involvement in sports that require running, cutting, and jumping.
