My daughter has Osgood Schlatters. The doctor told her that outside pain medication (whatever your doctor says, probably just tylenol) there isn't much you can do. My daughter plays soccer too and I think all of the direction change is quite a strain on the knees too. But anyway, the good news is that he says that it isn't damaging your knee and that it usually goes away by the time you turn 13-14. She grits her teeth and bares it. Tell your coaches what is going on and get advice from your doctor on minimizing the pain. Good luck.
Hey, if you are older than 13-14, I might try getting it looked at again.
