These pains feel like an achy or cramping in the body. Most common to occur after kids have been active, exercising and doing sport, however there can be other triggers. Excess movement of twists, jolts and usual energetic behavior has the ability to affect nerve control in the lower body.  This can sometimes generate growth pain.

There are many studies which highlight reason that these pains can occur. Some of which include rapid growth in a young body, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, rheumatic conditions, overexertion and more.
