Growing pains, the great misnomer for foot pain in children. The fact is pain is NEVER normal in a child’s foot or ankle. Often times, pain is a warning sign for other structural or biomechanical issues. Pain can be associated with growth plate injuries, stress fractures, overuse injuries in sports, increased weight due to childhood obesity leading to increased strain on developing feet, as well as many biomechanical issues including flatfeet deformities.
