Is it possible to get rid of osgood schlatter disease?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Osgood-Schatter: This is a disorder common in rapidly growing teens, that although painful during this period, has no long term effects on growth. Management is supportive and preventative, such as using shin guards for sports activities, NSAID medications such as Motrin/Advil, and applying ice packs when actively painful. This is usually a self resolving condition and treatment is aimed at pain management.
