Not sure what to do if your child is complaining of pain and you can't remember them hurting themselves? This is a question we quite often get asked and sometimes the answer is “growing pains”.
Growing pains are common among children. As many as one in five children experience some degree of this real, but quite harmless muscular pain during early years.
Growing pains are most prominent between the ages of three to five and eight to eleven. The most
common complaints include limb pain that has started for no real reason. Sometimes pain may occur after exercise, but this is not always the case as children often experience just as much discomfort without any physical activity. In most cases, growing pain usually ceases by mid-adolescence.
Most children tend to experience pain in the legs, particularly the thighs, calves and behind the knee. Arm pain is far less common and pain does not tend to change with movement. Pain episodes can occur as frequently as nightly through to weekly or monthly. Complaints of pain are most common in the late afternoon and evening and can often affect the child’s sleep with pain usually gone by morning. Normal daily activity is typically unaffected, with pain during the day being fairly uncommon. Children may also experience other forms of discomfort such as headaches
or abdominal pain during an episode of growing pain.
What can you do?
SquareOne Ambassador and local Mosman triathlete Owain Matthews recently won an age group World Championship title at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast on September 4th. This is a huge achievement for Owain as it’s a goal that he set a while back. It certainly came down to the wire on the day as he was battling cramps in the last few kilometre’s and managed to hold on to win by 6 seconds over a four hour race! We talk to him about he manages to balance a busy work, family and coaching schedule along with his triathlon endeavours.
Sitting at your desk all day can wreak havoc on your body. Did you know that good cholesterol levels actually decrease 20 percent and your risk of diabetes increases after only a couple hours of sitting? A new study of how Americans work shows that as we have made the move to desk jobs we have become less active, leading to obesity and other health issues. The study found that 80% of jobs are classified as sedentary, compared to 50% in 1960. At the heart of the issue is a drop in calorie burn of 120 to 140 calories. Combined with an abundance of snacks and larger portion sizes, this drop has added up to a big problem. Expanding waistlines, metabolic health issues and increased loads on our joints are some of the major problems. Being tied to a desk, rather than being on your feet all day is definitely a health issue, but adding activity to your workday isn’t hard to do with items you already have at hand. Even better, if you institute a few of these changes it is relatively easy to burn the additional 140 calories through the course of a workday.
Welcome to our August newsletter. There has been a lot happening at SquareOne this month. We are on a winning streak! We've won a Shute Shield title with North's Rugby and we've partnered with the Sydney Rays for the upcoming National Rugby Championship. Holly talks to us about keeping desk fit and how to avoid occupational injuries related to prolonged sitting and poor posture and Lauren shares a great article on keeping motivated and on track to achieve your goals. We hope you've enjoyed your winter as much as we have. The days are lengthening and spring is just around the corner. Read on!
The 2016 National Rugby Championship is about to get underway and SquareOne are proud to announce that we will be partnering with the Sydney Rays in 2016 as their physiotherapy providers and medical service co-ordinators. With North’s having such a successful season and winning the Shute Shield the timing for us to come on board with the Rays could not be better. North’s Head Coach Simon Cron has taken over the reins at the Rays and eleven of North’s first grade squad feature in the Rays roster. Tim Bushnell will be the SquareOne Physio with the Rays after doing an outstanding result at North’s this season. It’s a great opportunity for Tim and validates the work that we have done with North’s over the last eight seasons and it’s a relationship that we will be looking to build on. The Sydney Rays have struggled in the last two years with patchy results but we are expecting that to change this year with the new coaching and management staff.
