Some Facts About Growing Pains:

‘Growing pain’ is a generic term for aches experienced during childhood and adolescence, affecting the arm and leg muscles—commonly in the calf, front of the thigh or behind the knees. The pain is often worse following sport and in the afternoon or evening and sometimes can wake a child from their sleep. The cause for each child is different and it does not often cause any long-term problems. There are lots of way to reduce the impact of it on your child.

What are some causes of growing pains? There are other causes for growing pains that are common in active children and adolescents. Apophysitis is a common diagnosis for pain and occurs at the attachment site for muscles and their tendons. Symptoms relate to the growth area of the tendon attachment to the bone. These tendon attachments can be carefully assessed by our team, who will then give you an exercise management plan to prevent overuse of the area during sport.

Should I be worried about growing pains? Growing pains do not affect how a child walks and runs, make a child unwell or affect growth or adulthood. If your child is limping, complaining of pain during the day, is unwell or if the leg is increasingly sore to touch, you should seek care. They may have an infection or injury.
