I have this with my knee, and this article has helped a lot. Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tafantic (talkcontribs) 11:24, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Treagle (talk) 15:20, 27 May 2010 (UTC) The last couple of edits seem to have removed some useful background information regarding the origins of the name for this syndrome, and also to have introduced some tagging / format errors. I don't have enough experience of either the subject, the referenced content or the tagging / format controls to attempt this without screwing up. Anyone else? I'll look back again when I get some time and flag the entry for changes.

Please, Rewrite for Ordinary Reader[edit]

After reading this article, I know exactly as much as before reading it. Can someone who understands the subject and knows how to make it comprehensible to ordinary folk please rewrite it? Many Thanks!!! Tapered (talk) 20:42, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Not a rewrite, but added this to the first paragraph: "It is characterized by painful lumps just below the knee and is most often seen in young adolescents."Ortolan88 (talk) 22:41, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

Removed, but funny enough to memorialize in the talk page[edit]

This disease is also called a 3rd knee, a nob or "splaggies".Ortolan88 (talk) 22:32, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

Removed but not funny[edit]

I took out the synonym "knee cancer". There really is a cancer of the knee and O-S has nothing to do with it. This reference would be confusing. Furthermore, the confusion could be dangerous. See here, cancer mistaken for O-S [[1]]. Perhaps there should be a section discussing "growing pains" and possible misdiagnosis, but I don't believe "knee cancer" has ever been a synonym for O-S.

flat feet, low arches[edit]

I was diagnosed with having this as a result of having low arches (flat feet, falling arches) and with using orthotic insoles the problem completely cleared up and I've been fine for 20 years. Surprised to find nothing about arches and orthotics on this article page. Mayumashu (talk) 00:45, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

Olympic cyclist Mick Bennett[edit]

Greetings Doc James. Could I ask you to have another look at the article on former Olympic cyclist Mick Bennett?

The article does provide what I would regard as a valid reference though I think you may simply have missed this. I won't change it unless you agree. Bennett is well known in the UK & he literally has a track record but I don't know if his case is a good medical example of the problem or not. Regards JRPG (talk) 11:22, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

In this edit [2] you did not add that ref. If you bring that ref over than it will be fine. Best Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 12:20, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Shaq and Carl Lewis Had Osgood-Schlatter Disease[edit]

I read here that Shaq had Osgood-Schlatter [3]. I read or heard somewhere that Carl Lewis had it as teenager and required crutches for awhile because of it. maybe they should be added to the last section of the article as famous sufferers.socrtwo (talk) 18:33, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
