Anterior knee pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal complaints among pediatric and adolescent patients.

Up to 30% of all visits to sports medicine practitioners are for anterior knee pain.

Osgood-Schlatter disease is also a common cause of knee pain, but unlike sprains and other injuries, it is usually not very serious and has no long-term effects.

Common knee complaints:

  • Patella Malalignment
  • MCL Injury
  • Meniscal Tear
  • Osgood-Schlatter Disease
  • ACL Tear
