Squatting with osgood schlatter.
« on: October 27, 2012, 06:32:52 pm »
Should I squat with osgood-schlatter ? I have had it for over a year now and cause of that I haven´t squatted consistently but should I start squatting consistently with it ? Will it have any huge affect on my knee´s?

I know this is adarq and lance's q&a, but I would like to share my experience with my OSD condition.  I had it pretty bad on both knees. 

Long story short, I squatted, got stronger, and the OSD condition got better.  My right knee doesn't flare up at all anymore, and the left one was the same, but recently started mildly flaring up.  My OSD is however, 10x better than it was before I squatted.  I believe getting significantly stronger helped absorb all the stress/impact from jumping/basketball.  Just my opinion on what relieved my OSD.
Goal is to dunk.

Vertical needed to dunk: 40"

Current vertical : 38.5"
