Growth hormone tends to occur during the period when bones and muscles grow fast (from the upper grades of elementary school to junior high school students). It occurs especially in growing children who are playing sports.
Pain is caused by inflammation of the rough surface of the tibia (attachment of the quadriceps femoris). It is caused by excessive exercise during the growth period when the size and hardness of bones change.
When bone grows faster than muscle, it pulls, strains the muscles attached to the bone, and causes inflammation and detachment.
If the pain is severe, icing is recommended, but if you overdo it, it will cause poor blood circulation in the muscles and it will take time to heal, so be careful.
The treatment policy is to rest, compress the bone attachment area by taping, and relieve the tension of the quadriceps femoris.
It gets better when you stop exercising.
Unlike normal muscle pain, the pain lasts for more than a week.
