How long does osgood schlatters disease last and what is it?

Patience: Osgood schlatter's disease is a bone problem that occurs in burgeoning adolescence. It is benign in most cases. Anti inflammatories & rest are all that is usually needed to deal with it. Occasionally it's gets severe enough to merit casting. After growth is over the problem settles down. This is particularly common in male athletes. Http://www. Mayoclinic.

Osgood Schlatter: Osgood-schlatter is a condition involving a portion of the tibial growth plate at the insertion of the patellar tendon. It is associated with tight quadriceps (especially the rectus femoris). There can be a painful fragmentation that occurs at this area. The best treatment is stretching, nsaids and rice. It resolves when the growth plates close (usually around 14 for girls and 16 for boys).

Stretch, stretch and: Stretch. Osgood-schlatter is a condition involving a portion of the tibial growth plate at the insertion of the patellar tendon. It resolves when the growth plates close.

What is osgood-schlatter disease?

What is osgood-schlatter disease?

Age: This is inflammation of a muscle attachment point on the tibia in adolescents that are physically active. Reducing the amount of leg work with sports (running, lifting, etc.) can help it calm down as can use of antiinflammatory agents like ibuprofen. Rarely a kid will need a soft splint and crutches until walking can resume. As the kid gets older, growth stops as does osd.

Can osgood-schlatter disease heal?

Yes: After growth plates fuse in adolescence, this condition will heal spontaneously. Most patients if treated conservatively with rest and nsaids will be pain-free within 12 months. This is a self-limiting condition but will last longer if not treated appropriately. Some adults who had severe disease in adolescence will continue to have some knee pain (usually with kneeling) many years into adulthood.

Strenghten legs: Osgood shlatter's is typically an inflammation to the growth plate at the top of the tibia consistent with running and jumping in teenage athletes when the growth plate is still open.

OSD: Rest, tylenol (acetaminophen) or motrin. Goes away by itself. Usually at age 10-14 years. Always visit doctor or ortho if pain is not improving, severe, unable to stand/walk, or affecting basic activities of daily living. A repeat examination or getting x-rays is always a good idea.
