We believe that kids should be able to live pain-free lives. But if they are growing or participate in several sports they might complain of shoulder, back, hip, knee or foot pain. The term “growing pains” are commonly used, however, you can do a lot to help your child become pain-free.
As a parent, it can be hard to know when to seek help from a physiotherapist. Generally if your child:
- Limps due to their pain.
- Has pain for over a week which is not easing.
- Has ankle/foot (Sever’s disease) or knee (Osgoodschlatters disease) pain.
