Leg Pain in children

Postby shurley197323 » Thu Jan 27, 2011 8:33 pm

My p5 girl complain her thigh was pain after last thursday 100m run. And the pain is on & off but more serious early in the morning when she just wake up. The pain had flow to her right foot today. Just went to Polyclinic this morning, doc said it just muscular pain or growing pain.
I thought growing pain occurs during night time only . I really not sure , or maybe she is not the sporty type. Do your child had this before.
Please share.

Not really, my P1 ds complains about leg pain (foot) all the time. Sometimes it's day, sometimes night. A quick massage usually makes him feel better.

You may wish to check whether your DD has flat feet. Previously my DD similarly had leg aches after prolonged exercise. Heard from a colleague that her DS was diagnosed with flat feet, which was causing his leg aches. So I first just DIY and check my DD's feet out myself, by simply just asking her to step with her bare feet in water and looked at her feet imprint. Indeed her feet were flat! Consulted a podiatrist, and she'd insoles fitted and wore them for a couple of years, and her feet are now no longer flat. She also no longer has leg aches.

If required, you may wish to consult The Singapore Foot Centre http://www.sgfootcare.com.sg/

No. We sleep with the fan on only. This happen only after her last week 100m run. Last time, leg pain only occur once in a few weeks but now everyday.

It could also be poor blood circulation due to posture.

Try:
1. Massage
2. Take some isotonic drinks (the electrolytes help to relax the muscles)
3. Get her to exercise on regular basis (can be simple things like walking up and down 1 level)
