"Growing pains" is a benign clinical entity of unknown etiology. This study examines a muscle stretching treatment based on a theory that the etiology of these pains is related to fatigue. The experimental group (18 children) showed a more rapid resolution of their symptoms over an 18 month period when compared to the control group (16 children).
