Hi. My 12 year old son has Osgood Schlatter’s Disease in both knees. My heart is breaking to see him in pain and discouraged. I used the Voo Doo Floss band on one knee last night but he was in a lot of pain on the other leg while I was trying to get him to squat. Is it o.k. to floss both knees at the same time? I tried briefly and then he said he was getting light headed. Once he got in a few squats, he said he was feeling a bit better.Should I have him go though the available range of motion passively on his back before moving to a standing position?Does anyone know anything about using stem cell therapy for kids with OSD? Just thought I would ask on this forum in case anyone happens to know.Thank you!

I am sorry, I made a typo.

Osgood Schlatter’s Disease is a tough bell to unring one it starts.
Maybe wrapping with a little less tension on the band. If possible have 2 people wrapping the knees at the same time.
Work in pain free ranges.

OK, so it is ok to floss both knees at the same time?

Do you think some type of taping, like KT Tape, would help? I assume Dr. Starrett does not recommend taping since it is only masks the problem.

Yes, you can floss both knees at once.
Recommend having 2 people so each knee is wrapped at the same time. I do that with a couple of construction workers I work with.
Why are you taping?
What is the goal of taping?
Getting him out of pain is the first priority.
When applied properly tape on the skin can interfere with painful signals which are directed to the brain.
Manage symptoms first.
Stay pain free.
Buy slack to the area soft tissue mobilization to address the stiffness.
If you want help with it let me know.
