Premier League Physiotherapist Neal Reynolds talks to sportsinjuryclinic about growing pains, growth spurts, Sever's disease and what this means for sporting performance and training.
Neal has seen a lot of growing pain problems and a pattern which develops. There has been a lot of research done into heights and weights etc and this definitely demonstrates a link between conditions such as osgoods and severs disease and growth spurts.

The bones grow at a faster rate than the muscles and tendons and so the muscles have to work in a stretched position. The muscles catch up and then the bone grows again and further stretches the muscle.

Neal believes it is important to be aware of growth spurts and to advise the coaches and parents that when this happens they are more prone to injury and shouldn't push too hard with training.
