How is Osgood-Schlatter disease treated?
In most cases, simple management such as reducing the amount of physical activity, using mild pain-relief medications and ice packs to reduce pain and doing physiotherapy exercises are all that is needed to treat Osgood-Schlatter disease. In rare cases, when pain continues after the bones have stopped growing, surgery may be required.
