Growing pains are part of the growth process in children. Especially children who have grown more than 2 inches within a year. The bones grow longer and more dense….the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments) will lengthen and expand in response. When growth is fast, the nerves are getting pulled in multiple directions and stress is created.
Muscle activation, strategic stretching and drills help children through this process. It does NOT take long if the practitioner is experienced.
