Growing pains are one cause of recurring discomfort in children. The pains usually occur in the evening or night. The leg pain can be bad enough to wake a child in the night.
Usually growing pains occur in the legs, particularly:
- In the calves.
- In the shins.
- Around the ankles.
- At the front of the thighs.
Growing pains usually affect both legs. They are usually felt in the areas between the joints, rather than in the joints themselves. Contact us to find out more about how our podiatrists can help.
