Achy legs keeping your child awake at night? They may have growing pains. Restless nights of aching and throbbing calves, shins and thighs in school-age children may be the result of growing.
Although the name is deceiving, growing pains don’t always happen where growth is occurring or during time periods of rapid growth. Studies have shown that growing pains may be a myth, and linked to restless leg syndrome which occurs from overactivity during the day.
Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve swelling and pain caused by growing pains. Routine chiropractic care provides children with a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription medications or over-the-counter pain medications (OTCs), which are commonly prescribed to patients to help them manage their pain and swelling.
Chiropractors deliver a gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive therapy, known as a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve function of both the affected joint and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving your nervous system function and spinal health, your body has the ability to better manage symptoms caused by growing pains.
