- change in Knee and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score for Children (KOOS-Child-Questionnaire Score) [ Time Frame: at baseline and 8 weeks after baseline ]KOOS-Child is a patient-reported outcome measure employing five-item Likert scales. KOOS-Child covers 5 dimensions (subscales): Pain, Symptoms (titled "Knee problems" in the KOOS-Child), Difficulty during daily activities (ADL), Function in sport and play (Sports/Play) and knee-related Quality of Life (QOL). 0-100 scale, with zero representing extreme knee problems and 100 representing no knee problems
- Change in Knee pain assessed by Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: at baseline and 8 weeks after baseline ]The visual analogue scale (VAS) is a scale used to determine the pain intensity experienced by individuals. It consists of a line, 10 cm in length, with the left side signifying no pain and the right side signifying the worst pain ever.
- Change in Range of motion (ROM) of knee [ Time Frame: at baseline and 8 weeks after baseline ]Range of motion is typically measured using a goniometer. Normal ROM at the knee is considered to be 0 degrees of extension (completely straight knee joint) to 135 degrees of flexion (fully bent knee joint).
- Change in Y Balance Test (Lower Quarter) [ Time Frame: at baseline and 8 weeks after baseline ]The Y-Balance Test is a dynamic test performed in a single-leg stance that requires strength, flexibility, core control and proprioception. The goal of this test is to maintain single-leg balance on one leg while reaching as far as possible with the contralateral leg in three different directions. The three movement directions are anterior, posteromedial and posterolateral, performed on each leg. Each test is repeated three times, and the maximum reach in each direction is recorded.
- Time of return to sport activity (in days) [ Time Frame: within 8 weeks after baseline ]Time of return to sport activity (in days) since start of treatment
