I had that in my knees when I was a teenager. I am 6′ 1″ tall and I grew so fast that I developed Osgood. It was very painful. The stretching helped a lot. I also had shin splints and I had to stop playing basketball for awhile. Thank you for your posts. God bless!
Thank you for sharing your experience.
