A Scientist, Parent & Coach Provides Information Regarding Osgood-Schlatter & Severs Diseases

Probably 2 million or more active children at any one time in the USA, with as many as 30 million worldwide, suffer from the effects of Osgood-Schlatter and/or Severs Disease. Recently, new information has become available on how to manage the cause and its painful symptoms. These conditions can be safely and effectively controlled in days or weeks, not the previously expected months or years.

The information and advice in this website is based on many years of practical experience by a biochemist with over 30 years experience in pharmaceuticals and nutritional supplements. He has also been a youth sports coach of Soccer, Track, Basketball and Hockey. He himself suffered from both Osgood-Schlatter and Severs Diseases as an adolescent. When two of his own children contracted Osgood-Schlatter he began a search for the answer to these troubling injuries. With the help and advice of other medical professionals over the next 15 years, he developed several effective products for the treatment of both conditions. During the past 5 years he has helped thousands of children all over the world control pain and inflammation as well as shortening the duration of Osgood-Schlatter and Severs Diseases.

A Short History and Some Interesting Facts about Osgood-Schlatter Disease

This disease was named after the two physicians who defined it in 1903, Dr. Robert Osgood and Dr. Carl Schlatter. Recently, a Finnish study found that 13% of the teenagers of Finland had symptoms of Osgood-Schlatter. Today there are over 25 million children in the United States of America, and over 350 million worldwide, who are in the typical 8-16 year old age group that is most susceptible to Osgood-Schlatter. The condition is caused by the powerful thigh muscles pulling on the attachment point of the patellar tendon on the tibial tuberosity (see below) during activities such as soccer, basketball, track, wrestling, hockey, baseball, gymnastics and other sports. It is also a common problem for ballet dancers, as well as participants in Highland, Irish and other athletic dancing styles. Originally Osgood-Schlatter was reported as being more common in boys. However with increasing participation in sports by many young ladies, it is becoming almost equally as common in them. In fact, perhaps because of the more delicate skeletal structure in girls, they could be more susceptible. They have a smaller tendon attachment point, with greater tension per mm². It can even appear spontaneously during a child’s “growth spurt”, and has often been called “growing pains”.

Helpful New Information Regarding Sever's Disease

Sever's Disease is very similar to Osgood-Schlatter, but the injury is at the point in the heel where the Achilles tendon attaches to the Calcaneus, or heel bone. Sever's can appear for no apparent reason, or as a result of an impact event. It is also known by the term Calcaneal Apophysitis. The typical patient is between 9 and 14 years old, and complains of pain in the back of the heel. It is tender to pressure, and children may tend to walk on their toes to avoid pain. Untreated pain does not usually cease until heel bone growth is completed. Oscon can help to greatly accelerate the healing process. Heel pads, anti-inflammatory medicines and "RICE" (rest, ice packs, compression bandages and elevation of the leg) are often recommended by physicians.
