Chiropractic Care for “Growing Pains”

Your doctor at Chiropractic for Life is often asked if the term “growing pains” is fact or fiction.

Researchers agree that the periodic aches and pains children feel in their legs are real.  The term “growing pains,” however, is actually a diagnosis of exclusion; in other words, it’s often used when no other reason for the pain can be established.

Leg pain can be caused by a number of conditions, ranging from misaligned spinal bones (vertebrae) to muscle aches associated with overuse or growth spurts.  That’s why your doctor at Chiropractic for Life urges parents to avoid making assumptions when it comes to health issues, such as growing pains.

In addition to promoting regular wellness visits, your doctor at Chiropractic Life encourages parents to make an appointment for their child at the first sign of leg pain.Dr. Barbara Smith
