Unhappy Osgood-schlatters

I am 24 and was diagnosed with osgood-schlatters. Normally this disease with time fades away. How ever in my case it probably wont due to the fact that my bones are fully developed. I have alot of pain when I squat because of this. I have been on crossfit for about 5 months and doing as Rx'd for about 2 but I am having trouble now with squats. Is there something I can substitute or any ideas?

Re: Osgood-schlatters

Rest, massage, ice.

I think there's possibly the option of surgery that one of the guys went through I think made a post on it about a month or two ago.

I'm having problems with one of my knees too. Basically if you overdo it you will have what happened to me: tendon partially pulls away from the bone = you can't do ANYTHING except upper body work. Basically my legs are fairly useless at the moment which sucks big time.

Well, that doesn't quite work for those of us who can't even really do air squats full ROM much less weighted squats. If you can though that's the best way to rehab it IMO.

Thumbs up Re: Osgood-schlatters

I have been back to the doctor since my previous post. the doctor gave me about 5 months worth of Mobic aka meloxicam. I have done air squats since then, I did "Helen" yesterday, the 4x400 w/ 2 min rest today and I am going to complete cindy tonight. So far so good though. I feel some pain once the work out is complete but I seem to not notice it during the WOD.

Sorry I did not reply earlier, but I missed your post. Attached is a post that I started a few months ago on my experience with Osgood-Schlatters.
