Seven Tips to Get the Most Out of the Program
The background information about how to successfully complete this program
1. The program only works if you do
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.
2. You need to be the right kind of tough
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
3. Athletes and parents must understand the process
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.
4. If you are not getting great results make sure you actually have osgood
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.
5. Be patient and stick with it
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.
6. Stay with the program even after you are cured
Our program will make you stronger, more flexible, and increase your jumping and landing 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 keep a lookout for our advanced running and strength programs we will be launching those later in the year so that you can build on the pain free foundation you have laid and become an even better athlete under our guidance.

How Our Program Works
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.
Pain Logging (Daily)
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.
Daily Maintenance (Daily)
This is the new text
Workouts (Three times per week)
While the daily maintenance will help reduce your pain levels, the workout is designed to stop your Osgood ever coming back. You should do this workout three times a week, with each session separated by 48-72 hours (ie: Monday, Wednesday, Friday).
Equipment and Tools
Things you need to help you complete our program.
You can download the entire seven-week PDF workbook by clicking the button.
Print this out to fill in and chart your progress as you complete the seven weeks. We find printing it out and having a physical copy of the workbook to fill in every day gets the best results.
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.
Ankle Weights or Alternative
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.

Download our timing app
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.
