Osgood-Schlatter disease is a condition in which people experience pain and swelling right below the knee joint. It is the place where the patellar tendon connects to the top of the shinbone (tibia). This spot is called tibial tuberosity. Also, there might be inflammation of the patellar tendon, which stretches over the kneecap.
When you see a doctor, they might recommend certain medications or therapy. But trust us, nothing works as effectively as Red or Infrared Light Therapy. Book a session online.
The main symptoms of Osgood-Schlatter disease are swelling, tenderness, pain right below the kneecap, etc. The associated pain usually develops gradually over time. But it can appear suddenly as well. Sometimes, the pain may be worse in one knee than in the other. Often running, jumping, or climbing makes the pain even worse.
In this disease, a hard, painful bump can appear on the front of the knee right below the kneecap. This bump is basically a new bone growth in that place where the tendon pulls on the growth plate. While the pain will go away, the bump may remain even after a child grows up.
Infrared light therapy (ILT), offers pain relief benefits to athletes, as well as general exercisers and people suffering from chronic muscle or nerve pain. If you’re looking for a non-invasive and natural form of pain relief, you might give infrared light therapy a try. At Medano Medical Spa, Red light therapy provides your body cells with more energy enabling them to do their work more efficiently. In other words, certain cells absorb light wavelengths and become stimulated to work better. The red light increases blood circulation to the tissue and thus, reduces inflammation in cells.
