Osgood-Schlatter disease
Hello, I'm a 22 year old male. I was diagnosed with Osgood-Schlatter's disease in my right knee when I was 15. It used to pain during that time but eventually the pain subsided. Now the knee has begun to pain again. It also feels soft just below the knee cap. Is this issue getting serious or could it be a different medical condition?

Get an x-ray of both your knees sometimes Osgood schlatter disease may not subside if the tibial tuberosity is not fused completely to Tibia so better get examined from an Orthopedic surgeon

Avoid sitting Cross legged. Avoid Squatting- Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports Taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area
