Growing pains, want some tips to help ease them? Growing pains generally occur in kids when they become physically active and their relatively immature muscles try to keep up. In order to help manage the pain and develop healthier muscles the American Academy of Pediatrics advises several steps to be taken. First, take rests during athletic play. Next have your child participate in a variety of activities/sports. Finally, when the pains become bothersome, try a warm bath and a gentle massage before bedtime.
