Osgood Schlatter DAMNIT


#1

Hello.

I have osgood schlatter at age 13. I got an X-RAY and its look bad. The Doctor said i must rest but im 15 and its still hurt. It only hurt after play and not when im playing and its a bump and its big. it hurt when i push it.

Any suggestion so this thing can be healed


#2

apart from icing it and stuff mate there’s nothing you can really do I’m afraid


#3

its too long to wait… any more suggestion?


#4

i could ice it but it seems like wont work


#5

the pain will start to go away when your growth in hight slowes down.

I had the same problem bud, all through highschool i played football and did powerlifting and track. Knee hurt constantly, every once in a while id catch a helmet directly to it and roll around like a bitch. to my knowledge its not gonna actually injure you, it just sucks. I played through it with ice, plenty of warm up and tough love. strengthen your hamstrings and avoid the leg extensions.

Firstly what i hate is when people say it will go away when its stop growing

secondly its not same like osgood schlatter

The same:
Bump

The Difference:
It only hurt after playing not when playing

hey… hey…OP…guess…guess what… It’ll go away when you stop growing.

you got a bump at the top of your tibia, its tender, it hurts after activity… you got Osgood Schlatter, deal with it
