Let me explain: You do not need a cast for osgood -schlatters disease, usually we ask the patient to use immobilizer to keep the straight. If you developed complication were the bone were to avulse from there, you may surgery and brace after that.

You will not: Casts are never part of the treatment for osgood-schlatter's disease. No worries.
