help!!osgood schlatters!!
« on: March 14, 2004, 11:40:05 PM »
ok, im 19, ive had osgood schlatters in my left knee since i was about 13 or 14, its been bad and good over the years.
an i recently passed my medical an fitness test for the army, but over the last few weeks my knee has started hurtin alot more than it normally does, i havebeen buliding up the amount of training im doin which is probably the reason. will it just go away of its own accord? my doctor told me i wud have no problems with it an i wud grow out of it by the time i was 16-17, so is it possible it will stop hurting. are there any treatements anyones used, an has anyone tried oscon if so did it work??

Hey !!

If you know for sure you have developed this by excercising to much then you need to rest,ice and elevate. Try that for a while and if you have excercise programme since earlier for your muscles around the joint begin it again. If it won't help I really would consider making an os appointment. Good luck !!
