Matt, call back to this doc and ask what you are going to do with it.
Here some info about
Osgood Schlatter's Disease

This is an 'overuse' condition, where the attachment of the patellar tendon to the tibia bone becomes stressed.

So if you have this there's only one answer resting.



Despite its name, this is not a disease, but a painful bit of bone 2 cm below the kneecap, at the bump (tibial tubercle) where the kneecap tendon (patellar tendon) joins onto the shin bone (tibia).

In young people, most often boys, this area becomes swollen, red (inflamed) and painful. The many jumping activities of young boys puts stress on this bit of bone because at this age it has not fully matured.

Hard though it seems, the only real cure seems to be to rest it from the jumping - for a year or longer!

Surgery 6 times left knee torn meniscus, RSDS,chondromalacia, nervdamage cause constant nervpain,chronic inflamm.
Spinaldamage wheeler 100%.
Right knee damaged aug-06, use brace surgery 4/9-07.LCL tear.
