hi guys,
im 14 and whenever i bend my knees, and then straighten them, it hurts after i straighten them for like 30 seconds... is it cuz of growing.. or what..
my mom has a little guess she says its cuz my hamstrings are fat. but they're
not that fat..

I had the same type of problem at that age and it was enough to prevent me from playing football for a whole season. If you had a noticable growth spurt lately then you may have osgood schlatter disease. Because bones grow faster than muscle tissue, your tendons in your knee have a hard time growing at the same rate and end up getting stretched out which causes soreness.

naww man thanks for the help but its not osgood schlatter, because at the site i read that you have to have a lump under your knee cap and im sure i dont.

its probably just some random pain after a game... or maybe cuz i have never worked my quadriceps out

gonna bike a little and it'll help

You don't see it at first, but then the swelling come sup. It sounds like Osgood Schlatter to me mate.

yes, it's cuz ur growin. your growth plate. i suggest u try not doin too much. i went through the same thing. it's like right below the knee. and it hurts after running and stuff. it also hurts when you put weight on it and bend it after running. at least that's what happened to me. and it's not because i have fat hamstrings. i'm pretty skinny. it is osgood schlatter.

Thats so wierd. I was just researching that. I have this pain in the back of my knee everytime I stretch it out or touch it. I think thats it. The thing you guys are talking about. Its only in my left knee.

Hey, but how do you get rid of it, do you just grow out of it? Any tips on how to take the pain away?

ya ive got the osgood shlatter thing, it hurts a little bit, im also 14 and just had a huge growth spurt, if it is that then youll probably grow out of it. If it hurts wen u play then just dont play, go to a doctor or physio and get some excersises.
