Growth Pain in Children – With Your Podiatrist
I’ve seen countless parents coming to see me at the clinic.
Concerned about their children feeling pain in their legs.
Often, saying that their child is experiencing pain in their feet, shin, and knees.
Describing their child’s pain as a burning or aching feeling.
When I’ve asked if there is a recall of an injury or incident that happened to make their child feel this way, they aren’t sure or can’t recall a certain event.
Once I ask if their child has had a recent growth spurt, the answer is, most often, YES!
Let me share the common growth pain locations in the foot and leg. You’ll be well equipped with knowledge.
