Other Osgood Schlatters Treatment Components

But of course, how to treat Osgood Schlatters is not with orthotics alone. In fact, simply wearing a band or brace for the condition may not bring relief.

Perhaps the best treatment for Osgood Schlatter disease is taking a rest from or limiting one’s time doing activities that irritate the knee. A brace can help ease irritation from limited activity.

Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain medications can relieve pain and bring down any swelling, which can help with treatment for Osgood Schlatters. The same can be said for ice and heat therapy.

Physical therapy exercises to strengthen the quadriceps and hamstring muscles of the leg can also help reduce tension where the patella tendon attaches to the shin in the interests of treatment of Osgood Schlatters disease. This can also help stabilize the knee joint. 

Osgood-Schlatter Disease Rehabilitation Exercises

Stretching these muscles before and after participation in sports or other physically exerting activities is another important element of Osgood Schlatters treatment for a child.

Wearing a knee pad or wrap to protect the painful knee may also be a good idea. Again, this is another instance where an Osgood Schlatters disease brace for the knee can do double-duty.
