Hi all, my 11 yr old (12 in November) dd has had Osgood Schlatter (as well as soreness) on both knees for about 4 months now it started when we came back to the gym from quarantine since I think she might have had a growth spurt? It's getting to the point where I can't watch her in the gym without feeling bad for not pulling her out earlier or doing something. She often complains about it and it hurts every time she goes to practice and her knees sometimes give out on tumbling and vault. The doctors have just said that she'll eventually outgrow it but I notice that she has a limp and often gets to the point where she can't walk properly. The gym doesn't let her take time off without a doctor's note and seems to not give it much attention. We've tried just about everything (Oscon, KTape, supplements, etc) but it seems like nothing is helping her. I also don't think it's healthy for her to take NSAID's every time she goes to practice but I'm not a medicine practitioner so I don't know how true that is. Does anyone have any ideas what else could work or any gymnasts that had/have osd? Sorry for the length of this. But anything helps as I'm open to basically everything to see if she can feel at least a little better. Thank you!
