The good news is that each of these knee injuries can usually be cured at home. In fact, the best thing you can do for most knee-related conditions is rest. Some people opt to have surgery for Osgood-Schlatters, runner’s knee, and jumper’s knee rather than trying home remedies, but surgery is normally unnecessary. Treating your knee at home is much cheaper and can be more effective than surgery.
The best at home treatment methods for runner’s knee, jumper’s knee, and Osgood-Schlatter disease include:
This knee strap for running encircles your leg just under your kneecap and applies comfortable pressure around your patellar tendon, without constricting blood flow to your lower leg. Many people opt to purchase a knee brace for extra support and comfort rather than waiting out painful knee conditions.
This knee “ring” uses a specially shaped and molded pad to compress the area directly below your kneecap. Wearing a knee band helps distribute pressure off your sore knee joint and patellar tendon, alleviating pain caused by Osgood-Schlatter disease, runner's knee, jumper's knee, patellofemoral pain syndrome, chondromalacia, patellar tendonitis, and other knee conditions affecting your patella.
Osgood-Schlatter disease is a condition characterized by a painful inflammation (bony bump or spur) located below your knee. Often referred to as the growing pains of your knees, Osgood-Schlatter disease is most common among children and adolescents.
Unfortunately, some people continue to have pain from Osgood-Schlatter disease even after they are fully grown. This is usually caused by bone fragments left from when your bone was replacing cartilage in your knee. These fragments can be left in your patellar tendon from unresolved Osgood-Schlatters and irritate your knee. Most adults experience similar Osgood-Schlatters symptoms in comparison to kids and adolescents with the disease.
The buckle and Velcro closure make this knee band even easier to adjust and put on than ace brand bandage wrap. Because this patellar band is adjustable, you can tighten it to an ideal amount of pressure. Being able to adjust and tighten your knee strap to just the right amount of pressure is crucial in order to effectively ease knee pain. Plus, a sized knee strap is typically much more effective than a universal or one-size-fits-all knee strap.
This patella knee strap was designed to treat a wide assortment of conditions, including mild shin splints originating at the top of your shin bone. However, we recommend this neoprene sleeve for more serious shin splints.
Most types of knee bands for Osgood-Schlatter disease are made for kids, but this knee strap was specifically designed for adults.
This black knee band features a solid tubular neoprene pad that applies pressure to your patella tendon and is manufactured from premium-grade, latex-free soft loop neoprene, which is soft against your inflamed tendon.
The neoprene material provides warmth and moderate elastic compression to your sore knee, which reduces swelling and encourages blood flow to speed up your healing process.
Sizes range from XS all the way up to 2XL.
Using a fabric tape measure, measure the circumference of your leg around the middle of your kneecap.
