    Hi Joe! I have been receiving knee pain around my patellar for about a year whilst squatting, walking, going up the stairs, down the stairs, jumping… and the list goes on unfortunately.

    I always though it was a biomechanical error whilst training lower body, but after consulting with a sports PT, they said, after I brought it up from my own research, it is probably Osgood-Schlatter Disease, but they cannot definitively say without a full assessment.

    All they recommended for me was to ice, take anti-inflammatories, tape my leg, and stop squatting. I will be going to a different sports PT in my area for a full physical assessment to narrow down the exact cause, but in the meantime, do you know of any way to provide an adequate stimulus to the legs without bilateral squatting, whilst being able to still progress?

    I have been training at home, as Ontario gyms remain closed, however, I am fortunate enough to have a heavy-light stack of DBs, and a heavy-light collection of bands, as well as a crappy leg extension bench. Single leg squatting does not cause any pain, nor does leg extensions, or anything else single leg related.

    Do you believe I can provide adequate stimulus to grow them without bilateral squatting (the only bilateral squat pattern I have been doing is banded goblet squats)?

    Thanks Joe, and sorry for the mouthful of words.

    Thank you so much, Joe! I myself am a skeptic as you are when it comes to passive stretches “fixing” the issue. I will give the kinesiology knee tape a try, but I will do with the elimination of any movement that causes pain. I appreciate your thorough and detailed response as always Joe! Thanks again.
