Osgood Schlatters Surgery Recovery Time
What to expect before and after surgery for osgood schlatters? How long is recovery & will I be on crutches after surgery?
4-8 wks: Removing the 'bump' below your knee if it continues to be painful@ age17 will require you to be on crutches for a period of time after surgery. If your ors is able to " shell out " the bone out of your patellar tendon (ossicle) or has to'chisel out' or osteotomize the prominent tubercle (or both) will determine how long. Best of luck!
Permanently: The bony effects are permanent but the pain will disappear.
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. It can flare up despite rest, nsaids and stretch. There is no one single answer, but I would think that if you follow a good stretching program, at least 2 - 4 weeks for resolution of the symptoms.See 1 more doctor answer
Won't need: Surgery is not part of the standard of care for osgood-schlatter's disease, not necessary or helpful.See 1 more doctor answer
Maybe: Quite rare. Usually pts grow out of it by the time they finish growing. Sometimes PT or antiinflammatories or rest. Rare for surgery
I have osgood schlatters. I keep breaking little pieces of the bone that sticks out off. What should I do with them. Surgery? Wht about after surger
Surgery: Surgery to remove ossicles (pieces of bone) can potentially alleviate pain in patients who have not responded to nonsurgical treatment. A full recovery and no long term limitation would be expected after surgery. If you are not having symptoms then there is no reason to remove the ossicles.
Pain-lump below knee: Osgood-schlatter disease can cause a painful lump below the kneecap in adolescents experiencing growth spurts during puberty. Osgood-schlatter disease occurs most often in kids who participate in sports that involve running, jumping and swift changes of direction — such as soccer, basketball, figure skating and ballet more info-> http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/osgood-schlatter-disease/ds00392.
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.
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.
No danger, just pain: The most common treatments for osgood-schlatters include rest/ activity modification, ice, compression, anti-inflammatories, massage and therapeutic stretching that focuses on the muscles of the upper leg (hamstrings & quads). Individuals with osgood schlatter may partipate in activity to limits of pain tolerance without concern.See 1 more doctor answer
Rapid growth: Osgood-schlatter disease generally occurs in children nine to fourteen years old who have experienced a rapid growth spurt. About twenty percent of teenagers who are active in sports get it, compared with about five percent of nonathletes. It usually occurs with involvement in sports that require running, cutting, and jumping.

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. I see it a lot in basketball. While there is no way to avoid it totally, quad, hamstring strengthening will help and ice and nsaids will help post activity.See 1 more doctor answer
