Osgood Schlatters symptoms are: pain below the knee, and swelling which usually worsens during activities such as running, kneeling and jumping, and eases with rest. Sometimes an Osgood Schlatter bump is evident.

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.
I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!
Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.
