Hi, This is the first time I have posted but I’m desperate to hear of any success stories after suffering with Osgood Schlatters. My son is 13 years old and is in his 3rd year at Tring Park. He grew 6 inches last year and has subsequently suffered with terrible pain in his knees and shins. He hasn’t been able to dance since Summer and is now on crutches as his pain has increased. He has had 2 MRI scans which thankfully do not show anything else sinister going on other than Osgood Schlatters but his pain is not improving. School believe that he will probably be off dance for the rest of the year and I’m really concerned about his state of mind, he is very depressed and concerned about his training. Has anybody else’s children been through this and come out of the other side? It would be really good to be able to tell him there is light at the end of the tunnel. Anyone else that has had this much time off dance and gone on to join a company?
We think dd may be suffering from this- her knee (well, just below) came up on New years day, with no obvious cause of trauma, went to a walk in centre and the nurse suggested it was Osgood schlatter. She also said 'a bit of dance' might be good to help disperse the fluid, and to keep up pain relief and ice packs. Just wondering if any of you fountains of knowledge have any experience/advice for my dd- she's 11. Also, to further compound things, she dances with 2 teams, which are dancing at the finals of a competion in blackpool this weekend. - obviously she's worried she won't be able to, and is very upset. Oh , and then there's mids auditions on jan 20th too......... ???? I know you don't like to give health advice, but you're such a knowledgable lot, hopefully someone else has gone through this. Thanks, ????
My DD is currently auditioning for 6th form ballet schools but is nursing an injury which means that she is unable to do some of the audition exercises. Despite this, she has got through to a few finals, but even though the schools know all about the situation, I am wondering whether she can be successful at final if she can't do some of it. Has anyone got experience of auditioning with injuries and do you think that the people at the audition can see through the injury to the real dancer?
