Florence Morning News (Newspaper) - September 17, 1970, Florence, South Carolina2-c thursday september 17, 1970 Stoit by or. George c. Thosteson m. D. Dear or. Thosteson our son 15, has Osgood Slaughter on his left knee. The doctor said to give his leg Complete rest no unnecessary walking and no sports. He has been very Active in sports and wants to go out for football and basketball when that time comes. We can t make him understand that he needs to rest the leg. It is doubly hard when his school coaches in Sist that they did t give up their activities when they had it. He also has several classmates with Osgood Slaughter and they Aren t curtailing their activities. What do we Tell it s not Osgood Slaughter. It s 0 s s g Ood Schlatter s disease. But you Aren t the Only one who Calls i i be run across the same term from others recently. I am surprised to hear of school coaches who would urge a boy to continue in sports with a diseased Eood coaches Don t. I also wonder if they know what the disease is and whether they had it or whether they think that Osgood Schlatter s is a general term for any old kind of a lame knee. That applies also to these several classmates who claim to have it. I doubt if they know what they Are talking about. Osgood Schlatter s disease is a disorder of a specific part of the leg. Through in jury or other cause the Bone has distorted circulation. While it is in that condition pulling weight on it can shorten the Bone deform it and do such mischief that even surgery May not Correct it later. There is no medication to cure it. Only time and rest will let the circulation resume and it May take months sometimes Many months. My advice is to have your doctor refer you to an Ortho Peist Bone specialist to remove any doubt As to whether this really is Osgood sch latter s. Then i d insist on following whatever advice the specialist specifies. Depending on the degree of trouble restriction activity will vary. Sometimes taking it easy suffices. Sometimes a Brace. Sometimes a cast. In some instances youngsters have been confined to a wheelchair for a time. I would t take a Chance on ruining this boy s leg. If he won t listen to medical advice then i d put the leg in a cast. Dear or. Thosteson i have gradually been losing coordination in my fingers of my left hand and can hardly pick up anything. The fingers Are Bent and i can t straighten them out. I work in the dietary department of the Hospital and have to be careful that i Don t drop dishes. I balance a tray on my hand instead of holding it As there is no strength in the fingers. I Hope you can. Give me some idea what causes this. I am not sick so Don t want to see a . I m afraid you need a mild scolding especially since you work in a Hospital. You Don t have to be sick in bed to need a doctors help. While it s not possible to guess accurately what ails your hand something is wrong with it. Probably your supervisor at the Hospital would be had to Tell you which doctor to see.
