I need some advice, Damon is 11 and is having terrible growing pains. I never had them. I'm only 5'2 so I didn't grow that much. Anyhoo, he is miserable, and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what to do for them. He wants to be running with his soccer team, and he is in pain.

Strangely enough , I never had growing pains. I did have sloppy kneecaps from growing 18 inches in 2 years, so I do have lots of knee-pain experience

I didn't get any either, but I didn't grow all that much either. Well, that's not exactly true. I actually grew heaps quick and was one of the tallest kids in school for a while. Then it all stopped for some reason. A few kids shot up around me.

Me and my brother both had growing pains really bad I am 6"6 and he is 6"8 so it hurt a fair bit lol. The things that worked for me were getting some heat on the parts of the leg that hurt, massaging the end of the muscles was really good and i know he is young but if it gets really bad mild painkillers.
He should still be able to do football but normally a longer but less intense warm up does the trick and if he cant manage to run but wants to keep his fitness swimming was really good for me.

Anyway that what I did/ went through hope some of that helps you out.

Thanks Lodgebo, I'm going to try that today and see if it helps. He is hoping to be 6'4 like Ron. You need to be tall to be a keeper, and goal keeping is his passion. Thanks to everyone, and I'll post later and see how it goes.

Heat is my remedy for everything that aches, Do you have those little pillows that you put in the microwave over there? I LOVE those! Anything achy, just pop it in the microwave and ahhhhhhh.
