Growing Pains?

Boys and girls from the age of 5 -16 often complain of growing pains, usually in their legs. This is often due to growth spurts which can see a lot of growth occur over a short time. Bone tends to grow quicker than soft tissues (muscles, ligaments etc) and most of the growth in height occurs in the tibia and femur (leg and thigh bones).
