In brief: 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.
