Kids Knee Band for Osgood-Schlatter Treatment in Children

One of the many unpleasant things some children go through during puberty is the formation of a painful lump beneath the kneecap as a result of a growth spurt. This is especially prevalent among those involved in sports that involve jumping, running and changing direction quickly. When this occurs, it is known as Osgood-Schlatter disease.

Osgood-Schlatter disease is one of the most common causes of knee pain in adolescents, especially young athletes involved in sports. Most common among girls between 10 and 12 years old and boys around 13 to 15 years old. It occurs when your child's thigh muscles pull on the tendon that connects their kneecap to the growth plate at the top part of their shinbone. This repeated tension and irritation can cause the tendon to pull away from the shinbone, resulting in pain, swelling, inflammation, and occasionally the formation of a bony lump at that spot.

Get the support and pain relief your child needs with our strap for Osgood-Schlatters. Worn around the leg just below the kneecap, it can help "tack down" your child’s patellar tendon during activities and distribute some of the force away from the shinbone.

In addition to Osgood-Schlatter disease, this extra small compression strap can also be used to reduce pain and inflammation caused from a variety of conditions affecting the patella, including:

To cure Osgood-Schlatter disease, we always recommend consulting with a medical professional. A doctor will likely advice your child to ice their knee at home and stretch their muscles before and after participating in sports, in addition to wearing a patella guard. For specific exercises and stretches, check out the video below.

Can Osgood-Schlatter Disease Go Away?

Often referred to as the growing pains of the knees, pain associated with Osgood-Schlatter disease typically goes away once your child stops growing. Without treatment, some children are left with a permanent painless bump below their kneecap. In rare circumstances, some people may continue to experience painful symptoms into adulthood, caused by residual bone fragments around the patellar tendon from unresolved Osgood-Schlatter disease.

Similar to kids, adults with Osgood-Schlatter disease usually experience symptoms while kneeling or participating in repetitive physical activities and sports, including basketball, soccer, volleyball, figure skating, etc.

Our Osgood-Schlatters correction knee strap for adults applies comfortable pressure around your patellar tendon, without constricting blood flow.

5 Reasons You’ll Love This Pediatric Knee Brace for Osgood-Schlatter Disease

  1. Easy Alternative to Taping for Patellar Tendon Pain

    During the years of rapid growth, KT (Kinesio) tape can help relieve the symptoms of Osgood-Schlatter disease. Unfortunately, this medical tape is hard to keep clean and can start peeling off within a couple hours. Our patellar resistance band provides secure and reusable knee pain relief and protection without adhesive, eliminating the need for taping. Combine icing after activity and small bouts of rest to further relieve your child’s symptoms.

  2. Low-Profile & Nonrestrictive Fit is Kid-Friendly

    Designed with a child’s needs in mind, this 2-inch tall patella tendon stabilizer is extremely low-profile and nonrestrictive, allowing for full range of motion, so little kids are more likely to actually wear it! Unlike applying Ace bandage, your child can easily adjust the fit themselves by simply tightening or loosening the pediatric knee wrap.

  3. Tubular Pad Applies Targeted Compression for Optimal Pain Relief

    The rubberized, tubular insert applies uniform compression over your child’s patellar tendon, relieving stress on the tendon and its attachment at the growth plate (tibial tuberosity) on the tibia (shinbone). This helps spread pressure across a larger area to alleviate pain while hiking, walking, running, jumping, or playing sports.

  4. Non-Slip Interior & Medical-Grade Velcro Fasteners

    A textured, non-slip interior and medical-grade Velcro closure hold the band securely in place to prevent slipping or rolling during school, athletic activities, and more.

  5. Neoprene Material Provide Soothing Warmth

    The neoprene material traps therapeutic heat to increase circulation and heal sore or aching muscles. Plus, the flexible fabric and lightweight fit make it easy for your child to move about and engage activities as normal while wearing this comfortable knee support
