Natural Remedies for Growing Pain in Children

Submitted by on November 9, 2011 – 1:59 amNo Comment

In USA, 25-40% children between the age of 3 and 5 years experience growing pain. When the adults experience pain of any kinds, we generally first take a dose of a painkiller available over-the-counter. However, we cannot do the same thing in case of a child. The best way of dealing with growing pain in children is trying natural remedies. Below we have discussed some effective natural remedies for growing pain.

  1. Massage the muscles of your child for relieving the tension that might be the main contributing factor of the soreness and aches related to growing pain. Most children experience growing pain in their lower extremities, for instance in their thighs or calves. Take a warm lotion and put it on the body parts of the child where he is experiencing the soreness and the pain. If you find that muscles on any body part of your child are feeling tight, knead them gently. This will induce relaxation to the muscles and the child will be able to sleep.
  2. If your child is experiencing growing pain and is active, you can offer him a comforting warm bath. The heat generated by the water will help in loosening up the sore muscles. A hot bath before bedtime will relax his muscles and promote sound sleep.
  3. Performing some stretching exercises before bedtime is another way of eradicating growing pain naturally. This should be done particularly when your child had an extremely active day. Performing stretches lengthens and relieves the sore muscles. For young children, who are still not capable enough for stretching their major muscles groups, the parents should play the role of a trainer. Lay your child on the bed and fold and flex the lower extremities gently. This will help in preventing nighttime pains.
