The majority of young patients can manage with relief until the pain subsides, following which the sports activity can be slowly resumed. The period of relief is usually quite short if the relief treatment is started soon after the onset of the symptoms. The following rehabilitation program will cover the needs for the vast majority of children with Osgood-Schlatter. Older teenagers involved in sports at a high level can advantageously use the rehabilitation program for adults.
Unlimited: Cycling. Swimming. Running on a soft surface.

Stand with support from the back of a chair or the wall. Using your hand, bend the knee and draw the foot up and your knee slightly backwards so that the muscles in the front of the thigh become increasingly stretched. Hold the position for 20 seconds and relax for 20 seconds before repeating. The exercise can also be done lying down. If you lie on your stomach you can draw the foot up by using a towel.

Go up and slowly down from the stool. Go up with the healthy leg first and down with the same leg first. The load can be increased by putting on a rucksack and gradually increasing the ballast in the rucksack.

Stretching is carried out in the following way: stretch the muscle group for 3-5 seconds. Relax for 3-5 seconds. The muscle group should subsequently be stretched for 20 seconds. The muscle is allowed to be tender, but must not hurt. Relax for 20 seconds, after which the procedure can be repeated.

The time consumed for stretching, coordination and strength training can be altered depending on the training opportunities available and individual requirements.
