Hi my son was diagnosed with Osgood Schlatter last year after complaining of painful lumps on his knees. The doctor said oh he has Osgoods nothing to worry about he might get a little pain but it's not serious. I just feel very frustrated my son is 14 and he was playing squash until recently but was in so much pain after playing he was in tears so we have had to let him stop playing. He says even sitting is painful but all our GP does is prescribe Ibuprofen. Does anyone have any advice or more information or exercises anything that could help ease his pain. As a mum it breaks my heart to see him cry because his knees hurt but all we have been told by the GP is he will grow out of it but from reading other discussions here it seems this may not be the case. I'm at a loss as to whether there is more we can do for him or not.
