Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 16-year-old male and have had Osgood-Schlatter since 13. It has been on and off, but I have recently got it back. I have been doing all the exercises and stretches, but it does not go. Is there any way I can get rid of it?

Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Treatment for Osgood-Schlatter disease includes reducing the activity that makes it worse, icing the painful area, using braces or pads, and anti-inflammatory medication is needed. Surgery is rarely used to treat Osgood-Schlatter disease. Osgood-Schlatter disease usually goes away when the bones stop growing. Typically, this is when a teen is between 14 and 18 years old. So if you have severe pain, you can visit a nearby physiotherapy clinic and avail treatment using electrotherapy.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
