A New, Safe & Effective Treatment

Until now the accepted treatment for Osgood-Schlatter Disease was abbreviated as "RICE". This stands for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. Unfortunately, many times it has proven inadequate.

The following link will take you to some of the original case histories during the early development of Oscon.

Case Histories

Who is most likely to be a victim of Osgood-Schlatter Disease?

Osgood-Schlatter disease is probably the most frequent cause of knee pain in children. The condition occurs most commonly in children between the ages of 9 and 16 years but it can occur in younger children. Both boys and girls are equally vulnerable to its debilitating effects. Osgood-Schlatter disease is always characterized by activity-related pain that occurs a few inches below the knee-cap, or patella, on the front of the knee. The child will have swelling in the area, and tenderness to touch. Sports requiring lots of running, jumping, kneeling, and squatting are particularly associated. Many children first signal the start of the problem by rubbing the top of their "shinbones" with their hands, or even ice cubes, at practice sessions. The three main factors that contribute to Osgood-Schlatter are:

1. Between 9 and 16 years old.
2. Involved in youth sports.
3. In a "growth spurt".
