Abstract

Background: Osgood–Schlatter disease (OSD) is commonly reported in adolescent athletes. The studies have shown that excessive tension placed on the apophysis as a result of bone expansion causes harm to the apophysis. Further, the quadriceps muscular mass is repeatedly contracted resulting in the softening of the apophyseal ossification center leading to Osteochondritis. The affected person has the pain with or without any swelling. Objective: This review aims to assess the efficacy of physiotherapy on OSD in terms of pain reduction, functional improvement, and patient satisfaction. Method: The present analysis was performed on the basis of review articles from various databases including the PubMed, Science direct and Scopus. Studies from 2019 to 2023 were included in this study. Conclusion: It was concluded that muscle strengthening and core stability exercises can significantly help OSD patients to reduce pain and symptoms of the condition. Physiotherapy also helps them to return to their normal sport activity within a significant shorter time in comparison to the wait and watch policy.
