Growing pains are real
Gremlyn Bradley-Waddell, AZ Republic, Nov 2, 2011, writes that 25-40% of kids experience “growing pains.”
Usually these aches and cramps come in the night and are below the knee.
Often these arise after a very physical day. About all that can be done to prevent them is good quality, supportive shoes.
If these pains continue or extend into the morning or pop up during exercise—you might want to tell the doctor.
In the meantime, some attention, massaging the area, or some ibuprofen can help.
