How to Treat Growing Pains?

Medical Treatment:
Do the following things you can to relieve growing pains:
  • Give them a warm bath before they go to bed
  • Gently massage your child legs
  • Give children ibuprofen or paracetamol
  • Should not give aspirin to a child under the age of 16
  • Hold a covered hot water bottle or heat pack on the painful area
  • If the pain is only in one leg and the pain is bad enough to stop your child walking or makes them limp, or pain is in their joint, contact your GP
