Which of the following suggestions should the nurse give to an adolescent football player with Osgood-Schlatter disease of the left knee?
1. Apply ice on the knee after playing.
2. Use crutches until healing has occurred.
3. Stop playing until healing has occurred.
4. Make an appointment with a physical therapist.
Most adolescents with Osgood-Schlatter disease are able to continue to exercise and use ice afterward. Ibuprofen also may be prescribed. Because Osgood-Schlatter disease is self-limited, crutches or physical therapy is usually unnecessary, and the adolescent usually does not need to stop playing sports. Only in severe cases would the adolescent have to stop playing sports.
