“Our 10-year-old daughter Emma finally embarked on her desire to enrol in a women’s football school. She started training immediately with lots of enthusiasm. However, after about a month she began to limp due to the pain in the right knee.
After clinical investigations, ultrasound scans and visits to a sport’s doctor, it was confirmed that she suffered from Osgood-Schlatter syndrome or osteochondritis of the anterior tibia apophasis, which is a degenerative process borne by the tibia tuberosity.
For this syndrome the requirement is absolute rest until the inflammation’s resolution, ice applications a couple of times a day and using a medical knee brace to reduce the strain; the pathology ‘s duration varies from 3 to 9 months.
For about a month and a half Emma suspended every workout at both the training field and school, she wore the brace and had ice applications every day. During this period, the pain associated with inflammation decreased but not disappeared.
A couple of weeks ago Emma was Kinesiologically balanced by her auntie Barbara to see if she could help with the problem, let alone solve it. Since the day of that treatment the pain has completely gone. From the diagnosis to today it’s been less than 2 months and Emma had her first training session without pain”
