Every Osgood case is unique.
Different triggers, pain symptoms, and underlying causes require individual programming, screening and assessment and as such you should use common sense throughout this entire program. Read the instructions and explanations twice before proceeding.
Before beginning this program we advise every athlete double check with their doctor (GP) or physical therapist (physio) to confirm your knee pain is in fact caused by Osgood Schlatter Disease. A different injury or diagnosis may not respond favourably to this program.
Some parts of this program will cause muscular pain and discomfort as you need to loosen off and re-strengthen your leg and core muscles. This is completely normal however: If you feel any joint or back pain, sharp muscular pains, or notice any unusual knee pain (different to your Osgood pain) when performing any of the exercises, please use common sense, stop immediately and seek medical advice.

The background information about how to successfully complete this program
Our program always works for those willing to push through the rolling pain and commit to the discipline of following our plan every single day. Osgood is a problem you have to lengthen and strengthen your way out of and this takes consistency and commitment.
The right kind of tough is pushing through the muscular pain of rolling and strength training as well as the boredom of stretching. The right kind of tough is having the discipline to not suddenly double your training load because your knees are feeling amazing that day.
The wrong kind of tough is pushing through joint pain hoping it will just get better on its own. Remember if you trade your joint health for fitness you will end up with neither
Being educated about the process is vital to making informed and intelligent decisions as you progress through the program. The detailed program outline below tells you everything you need to know about how and why our program works.
We have been successfully implementing these methods in our gym for over a decade, it’s only recently that the scientific evidence supporting our methods has been published. Follow this link for further reading and more detailed explanations of the scientific underpinnings of our program.
The only real failures in our program are athletes who either don’t have Osgood or those which turn out to have osgood plus another problem of some sort. In these cases it is vital to thoroughly investigate what is going on and take action to deal with the other pathology. We strongly recommend seeking a second opinion if you have been following our program correctly and arrive at week four without a substantive decrease in pain levels.
For some young athletes there is an immediate and significant reduction in pain levels, for others it takes a little longer. Stick with it and follow the process and you or your child will be pain free in a matter of weeks.
Our program will make you stronger, more flexible, and increase your jumping and running skill. However all these gains can be lost if you quit the process once the pain has gone away. Stick with the program even after you are pain free as it will keep you strong and safe. Also check out our advanced running program so that you can build on the pain free foundation you have laid and become an even better athlete under our guidance.
This program is broken into seven weeks. The content for each week of the program will become accessible as you complete the previous week and are ready to move on. Each week will build on the one before, progressing you along at the most effective pace.
There are two types of training sessions in this program, the daily routine, and the workout. Both of these will grow in length and complexity as your pain settles and your strength increases.
Being in pain is not fun, but by continually monitoring your pain levels is a great way to better manage your pain in the short term, and better predict and avoid pain and injury in the future. You will learn the best way to test and score your pain in week one.
Doing this short body maintenance every day is key to not only eliminating your pain but also helping you become a better all-round athlete.
Perform these workouts three times per week, with at least 48 hours rest between each one. These workouts are designed to build your strength and movement skill.
The workouts do not start until week three of the program.
Things you need to help you complete our program.
An essential part of the program is the daily and weekly workbook to help you through the process.
We recommend printing it out and filling in each day as you go through the program, monitoring your progress as you proceed.
You can download the workbook by pressing the button below.
As part of the seven week program we have created an online support community for athletes and parents struggling with Osgood Schlatters.
It is a private group exclusive to members of the Secret to Curing Osgood Schlatters Training Program, to join, press the button below and request to join us.
You will need a foam roller to get started with week one as foam rolling is one of the most fundamental components of this program’s effectiveness. We recommend the Trigger Point 13″ original roller you can get them online from Amazon, and most sporting good stores. You can download an instructional PDF for the rolling here.
If you have access to a gym with a leg extension machine that is brilliant, however, if you don’t that is ok, most of the exercises only require bodyweight and can easily be done at home. For the knee isometrics, some people find ankle weights helpful, but reusable grocery bags with canned food or bottles makes a great alternative.
The program contains instructions for both a gym and home-based program.
You will need to accurately time your stretching and the knee isometrics exercises, for this, we recommend our custom built app. The app contains pre-built timers exactly for this purpose and you can also build custom timing protocols.
PLEASE NOTE: You will not be able to log in on the app, we use this as an in-gym booking system however this log in portal no relevance to the Osgood program.
