Spotlight On Health


Growing pains are not a disease. But they can hurt. They happen to 25% to 40% of children when kids are 3 to 5 and 8 to 12. There is no evidence that growth of bones actually causes pain. Many believe that kids get growing pains because they’ve tired out their muscles. When you’re running, climbing, or jumping a lot during the day, that can be hard on your musculoskeletal system. You may have aches and pains in your legs at night from overuse during the day and that is most likely the cause of growing pains. Read more about growing pains in today’s Spotlight On Health.
