    I decided to investigate! Wikepedia reference would seem to suggest there could be bone abnormalities as a result of OS disease:

    The condition is usually self-limiting and is caused by stress on the patellar tendon that attaches the quadriceps muscle at the front of the thigh to the tibial tuberosity. Following an adolescent growth spurt, repeated stress from contraction of the quadriceps is transmitted through the patellar tendon to the immature tibial tuberosity. This can cause multiple subacute avulsion fractures along with inflammation of the tendon, leading to excess bone growth in the tuberosity and producing a visible lump which can be very painful, especially when hit. Activities such as kneeling may also irritate the tendon.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osgood–Schlatter_disease

    And then there's corroboration in a book called (fascinatingly) "The Bioarchaeology of Children": https://books.google.com/books?id=xP...eleton&f=false
