As kids grow they tend to be loose body awareness and flexibility, thus resulting in abnormal loading of joints, tissue growth, and a lost body awareness. Osgood-Schlatter Syndrome (aka OSS), is essentially a common condition for young children who are very active. OSS is known to occur during growth spurts, when bones, muscles, tendons, and other structures are changing rapidly. In addition to the growth spurts, adolescents who participates in activities, especially in running or jumping sports, have a higher risk for this syndrome. Depending on the severity Quek Performances provides treatment by activity stretching and strengthening their muscles (Le/core strength) and efficient load distribution. At Quek Performance, we are happy to assist you in rehab, performance in sports, or in any of your specific needs.
