  Can the brace make the bump on the tuberosity less prominent?

In some cases, when the disease is treated relatively early in young sports people, the bump can disappear because of wearing the brace.

  How do we know where to position the brace?

The brace should be centered relative to the knee. The anterior tibial tuberosity should be positioned in the center of the brace.

  What are the benefits of the End-Osgood brace?

The brace provides compression to the patellar tendon, limiting the strain on the anterior tibial tuberosity.

·          The brace adapts perfectly, thanks to it being molded, to all shapes and sizes of knees

·          The brace helps spread the load carried by the anterior tibial tuberosity

·          The brace isolates the painful point

·          The brace protects against direct traumas (impacts, rubbing,…)

·   

  Can this brace aggravate the disease?

NO!

In medicine, the positive effects of a treatment are sometimes received differently by different patients. However, in the case of this brace, we have seen that in 90% of the treated cases, the brace permanently healed the disease in 3 months. We have had two cases where the brace did not work. One child had to wear the brace longer during his sports activities and in the other case, more severe, an operation was needed.

Treatment

  Is an operation recommended?

NO!

For all children under the age of 16 years old, an operation is not at all recommended.

  Must my child stop doing sports during the entirety of the treatment?

The procedure is as follows:

·         Stop sports for 1 month and wear the brace daily

·         In the 2nd month, start sporting activities again while wearing the brace

·         The brace should be removed when all the pain has completely disappeared

The clinical study showed that 90% of the children were able to remove their braces after about 3 months.

The human body reacts differently for each individual, so it is possible that the treatment could be prolonged.

 

It is very important to listen to the child’s opinion. If they have a difficult time to explain the level of pain they feel, use the EVA pain scale which is accessible from your Orthorepass account.

SConsequences

  What are the potential consequences if Osgood-Schlatter disease is not treated?

  • The anterior tibial tuberosity can become very large and interfere with the bending of the knee
  • Chronic pain can appear, sometimes debilitating
  • Calcification of the patellar tendon

In some cases, an operation is necessary and effective. In other cases, it is not effective and when the child becomes an adult they may have limitations in the sports that they can play.
