Have you or you children got Growing Pains?
These types of pains are usually exacerbated by exercise and activity and relieved with rest, and are more common in those who participate in sports with repetitive jumping, running and throwing, such as basketball, gymnastics, baseball and volleyball.
Common Growing Pain Sites
Heel – Sever’s Disease
Knee – Osgood Schlatters Disease, Sinding Larsen Johansson Syndrome (Jumper’s Knee)
Elbow – Little League or Pitcher’s Elbow
