Treatments and drugs

By Mayo Clinic Staff

There's no specific treatment for growing pains. The good news is that growing pains don't cause other problems, and they don't affect growth. Growing pains often get better on their own within a year or two. And if they don't go away completely in a year or so, they often become less painful. In the meantime, you can help ease your child's discomfort with self-care measures, such as massaging your child's legs.
