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 .

Why is an End-Osgood Brace offered with two colors ?

An End-Osgood brace systematically has a black face and a colored face to allow the sports child to identify the left knee of the right knee in the case of Osgood-Schlätter disease or bilateral Sever.
Moreover, the molding can be done either on the black side (Color on the outside) or on the colored side (Black on the inside).

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.

How to maintain the End-Osgood and End-Sever brace ?

End-Osgood orthoses (end-osgood brace and strap) and End-Sever can be washed by hand in lukewarm water.
If during washing, the lycra comes off a little, you can glue it back by ironing the orthosis with a steam iron at medium temperature.
Note: When training and playing with your children, it is recommended to put a knee support over the End-Osgood brace. This will ensure proper brace maintenance and protection against tearing of the orthosis during certain shocks and prevent it from getting dirty.

Risk factors

Physiology of the child

As your sports child grows, his body evolves and sometimes it can happen that the orthosis, which is a mold of the morphology of your child at a time T, is no longer appropriate.
To remedy this, you can mold the orthosis again by immersing it in hot water (70 – 80 ° C) and in this way, it will soften so that you can mold it again on the knee or the heel of your child.

NOTE: Be careful not to burn your child by applying the hot orthosis after having relaxed it.
