Sports Chiropractors can help even the youngest of athletes with pains that occur while they’re growing and developing such as Osgood Schlatters Disease. Seeing sports chiropractors for such conditions can ease pains that are likely not going to go away until growing is done but can be managed with the proper therapy and treatments. Call McBrearty Soft Tissue and Sport Chiropractic to schedule your child an appointment at 330-491-0381 or you can learn more about our office at www.yourartdoc.com. Osgood Schlatters is something that can flare up and get out of hand very quickly if not treated quickly and effectively.
Osgood Schlatters Disease occurs when children are still growing and are also involved in sports or activities that require a lot of jumping or running. This puts repetitive strain on the Patellar Tendon causing inflammation resulting in pain. When this stress is put on a child’s growth plate it can cause tension on the attachment points of the tendon where it attaches to the bone and it pulls at the bone and stretches the tendon to the point where that stress becomes painful.
Sport chiropractors cannot cure Osgood Schlatters and it will only resolve when the child has stopped playing the activity that is causing the stress or until the child is done growing. Sports Chiropractors, however, can assist the athlete to manage the pain allowing them to continue playing and participating with the minimal amount of pain possible. They will provide treatment on the quad tendon as well as the patellar tendon itself by applying our soft tissue therapy Active Release Technique. If needed they will use other modalities such as Graston, Cupping, or dry needling to aid in the pain management of the knee.
After treatment has concluded, the patient will go to our rehab room to learn how to decrease their discomfort on their own. This will occur by foam rolling, stretching, and strengthening the involved muscles. It is important that the child is consistent with the treatment that the sports chiropractors are providing and teaching to ensure the best results and outcomes. Without sports chiropractors, OsgoodSchlatters could become very painful to the point where the child has to quit playing their sport or change the amount they are involved in their activity. Sports Chiropractors allow the patient to continue to participate and minimize the pain simultaneously.
Sports chiropractors are able to decrease the likelihood of a child having to resign their sport or activity and even decrease pain to make their condition more manageable and less painful. The goal is to get you pain-free, teach you how to stay that way they kick you out the door, and at McBrearty Soft Tissue and Sport Chiropractic we believe no news is good news.
