Growing pains are described as pain most commonly in the legs in kids between the ages of 3 and 11. They can also occur in adolescents. Medically the cause is unknown. In our experience, we have found that dysfunction in the Lower back and pelvis can cause the muscular leg pain.
The most important thing with growing pains is to make sure there is nothing more complex going on with your child. Simple growing pains often respond well to treatment from the Chiropractor and our team are experienced with kids and have completed additional training in looking after children.
Growing pains should not affect the way your child walks or runs and will not make your child unwell. If they experience these symptoms it is important that they are checked. If we are unable to help, we will send you to the right person.
If your child is experiencing growing pains, call our office to see if we can help.
