treatment is conservative with RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation), and if required acetaminophen (paracetamol), ibuprofen and/or Co-Codamol or stronger if in 'acute phase' & (the pain is severe and continuous in nature). The condition usually resolves in a few months, with a study of young athletes revealing a requirement of complete training cessation for 1 week (on average) and gradual resumption of full training by 1 months.[3] Bracing or use of an orthopedic cast to enforce joint immobilization is rarely required and does not necessarily give quicker resolution.
