In brief: Manage Pain, stretch

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.
