Why Kids Don't Need To Suffer Leg Pain

By Adam Glascock

Many of us whose children participate in winter sports from netball to hockey to soccer and rugby will at some time hear our little weekend warriors complain of sore legs and feet. This may be after sport, a long day at school, on rising or even just a family excursion.

Whilst 'growing pains' has been a term widely used to define these complaints, there is often underlying causes which when addressed result in the cessation of pain, along with no late nights rubbing legs and preparing hot packs. Hip, knee, foot and ankle pain in children is not a simple problem to solve.

Focused stretching and suitable footwear, addressing poor lower limb function and biomechanics relieves these pains which can mask greater problems uncovered when correctly assessed by an experienced podiatrist frequently dealing with paediatrics.

Put simply, our children don't have to 'put up with' their pain and assessment is a good starting point to a happy sporting hero.
