    Default strengthning exercised for a teen with Osgood-Schlatter

    I have a 13 year old son who was diagnosed with osgood-schlatter last year. He plays football, soccer and basketball and is going to begin weight training this summer at school and he has recently joined me at the gym (mainly just for cardio now) but we are unsure what kind of exercises would be good for him. We would like to focus on strengthing but have no idea where to begin. Any suggestions for a good exercise routine for him ??

    I played soccer for years with osgood-schlatter and am all to familiar with that pain!! I can tell you an exercise that is HORRIBLE for his knees to help him avoid the pain from one. The leg extensions are knee killers if you have "OS". They hit that tendon horribly and should be avoided. Every sports medicine DR and the trainer for every team I ever played for told me not to do them. I really feel the knee sleeves when not playing are one of the best things to make the knees feel better. Where in SA? I got my "friday night lights" ring playing for Churchill in 1989. Good luck.

    The following two links are just basic information, which you may already know or not, but they lay help in finding your way around any routine that you select, so that you're able to take out problematical exercises and address the muscles and ROM etc. Ignore the top part of the first link, the rest of it seems really good:

    ^^informative articles. The internet was just a young pup when I was going through that pain and wasn't available to me.
    Good links!

    I played basket ball and single-leg stretch is a good exercise

    I think your son is doing to many sports activities especially if he was diagnosed with osgood-schlatter.

    I love all sports but a sport that involves high jumping like basketball is not very recomanded in his case. In fact all three sports he is doing now involves a high presure in that zone.

    From what I know this problem ( osgood-schlatter) apears in preburty period and it takes time ( several years) to heal.

    The best thing for him is to peak one only one of sports above and use knee pads or other type of protection. And with weight lifting I don't know for sure. He is to young and his body will enter in a process of big maturation where strenght and size would be modified.

    My advice is to see a physical therapist.
