Background: Osgood-Schlatter disease refers to pain isolated to the bump just below the front of the knee in active, growing children (usually aged 9-13 years).It is an inflammation of the bone, cartilage, and/or tendon at the top of the shinbone where the tendon from the patella attaches. Repeated stress can cause the tendon to pull away from the shinbone a bit, resulting in the pain and swelling associated with Osgood-Schlatter disease. Purpose: Aim of this study was to find out how treating distorted fascia improves ROM, Pain and function of the patient.Case Description: We present a case of 13 year old boy who was involved in sport activity karate had difficulty in performing karate and pain at anterior aspect of knee joint and also had difficulty in bending the knee Since 6 months. Orthopaedic doctor advised him for rest and given medication But there was no improvement for long duration so doctor advised him for physiotherapy. we started the treatment in form of ice pack application for 15 minutes and fascial distortion model techniques- trigger band technique and continuum distortion technique was given for 3 weeks and 5 sessions per week. The pre and post measures of data taken every week. Outcome Measures: Range of Motion, Visual Analogue scale, Wall Slide Test Conclusion: This study shows that FDM is effective in reducing pain, improving ROM and physical function in case of Osgoodschlatter disease.
