Growing Pains in Children

The young body's rapid growth can create or contribute to problems associated with bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Osteopathic treatment can help remove the strain that's causing growing pains.

During rapid growth phases, the child’s bone lengthens before his muscles and tendons are able to stretch correspondingly. This can cause pain which is worsened if there is restricted movement elsewhere pulling even harder on the muscle or joint. Osteopathic treatment can straighten your child back up to help relieve the pain.
