Childhood Growing Pains

What are growing pains?

The term "growing pains" refers to a benign (not dangerous) pattern of pain in the limbs. This pain usually occurs in children aged 2 to 12. These pains are the most common type of limb pain in children. Between 10% and 35% of children will have these pains at least once. Growing pains occur mostly in the legs (shins, calves, behind the knees or thighs), and affect both sides of the body. The pain appears late in the day or at night, often awakening the child. By morning the child is well, with no pain or stiffness.
 
Parents often report that they can predict when the pain will occur, often on days of increased physical activity or when the child is tired and grumpy. The duration of the pain is usually between 10 and 30 minutes, although it might range from minutes to hours. The degree of pain can be mild or very severe. Growing pains are intermittent, with pain-free intervals from days to months. In some children, the pain can occur daily. Early intervention of growing pain conditions will reduce the pain the child is experiencing and prevent the athlete from developing long term mobility issues that may impact their daily lives and participation in sport.
