Best Knee Braces For Osgood-Schlatter Syndrome

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO HELP WITH KNEE PAIN FROM OSGOOD SCHLATTER SYNDROME?

Osgood Schlatter Syndrome is a condition that affects the knee of adolescents and adults. When going through a growth spurt, the quadricep tendon attached to the knee joint lengthens and becomes tighter, causing stress to the growing bony area.

Common symptoms include pain in one or both knees, pain when extending the leg or squatting down, pain when walking, running or climbing stairs.

Bauerfeind’s high-quality knee supports or braces with medical-grade compression target the pain symptoms and instabilities associated with Osgood Schlatter syndrome.

GenuTrain knee braces are dedicated to minimise the tension and discomfort you may feel in your knee. The gentle fabric is comfortable and flexible, allowing you or your child to continually perform everyday activities without any restrictions to movement.

WHY NEOPRENE DOES NOT WORK

We do not recommend using a cheap neoprene knee brace or knee sleeves. These sleeves offer little support and do not wick moisture. Using a 3D weave and moisture wicking fabric, Bauerfeind knee braces are ideal for both everyday and sports use. As the old saying goes, you do get what you pay for.

WHAT IS PROPRIOCEPTION?

Wearing the GenuTrain aids in faster recovery through improving the proprioception of the body. This aids with pain symptoms and instabilities associated with Osgood Schlatter syndrome. Take a look at this video to understand proprioception and the mechanism of action of the GenuTrain to enhance proprioception. 

 

HOW TO HELP MINIMISE OR MANAGE KNEE PAIN FROM OSGOOD SCHLATTER SYNDROME?


  • Physical therapy. Strengthening exercises prescribed from your physiotherapist or exercise physiologist help to build muscles around the knee, easing the load on the joints and reducing pain.
  • Stretching. Lessen stiffness and reduce pain through stretching exercises.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and analgesic may be helpful for pain management.


Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent knee pain.
